Veritas Software Corporation Middle East the regional software provider, has announced the opening of a new state-of-the-art training facility at its regional headquarters in Dubai Internet City (DIC).

The training facility is Veritas' first advanced education centre of its kind in the Middle East, and actually simulates the same business and technology challenges faced by organisations across the region.

"Storage management expertise is becoming a must-have skill in the Middle East's business community," said Mike Hynes, regional director, Veritas Middle East. "The new in-house training facility at Dubai Internet City will enable Veritas to further develop a base of skilled professionals from across the region by creating real-life storage scenarios onsite to educate both end-users and resellers."

"Companies that set aside time to provide their IT managers with training are bound to experience business benefits including greater productivity and improved service levels within their organisations. At the same time, boosting certification among Veritas' reseller community means our customers can expect a consistently superior level of service as well."

The storage area network (SAN) environment created within the new Veritas training facility enables a full proof-of-concept (POC) capability for students to develop hands-on storage management skills.

The Veritas centre is equipped with six Sun V240s servers, with three sets of shared storage, and three StorageTek SDLT L20s tape libraries. Training attendees will learn firsthand how to deploy and manage Veritas solutions for storage management, data protection, high availability, application performance management, and disaster recovery.
