As the leading distributor of Red Hat Linux products across the GCC, Opennet views Gitex Saudi Arabia as the perfect platform from which to promote its expertise in deploying Red Hat Linux in the local market. For the past four years, Opennet MEA has been representing Red Hat Linux in North Africa and has successfully introduced Linux to government agencies and businesses across the region. At this year’s Gitex, the company hopes to build on this success and help the Kingdom’s end users take full advantage of open source technologies. To this end, Opennet MEA will be using the trade show to demonstrate how its full range of consulting and professional services can assist businesses with the assessment, design, and implementation of professional Linux solutions and ensure high availability, reliability, performance, scalability and manageability within their IT environments. “One of our prime objectives in the immediate future is to ensure that the enterprise end user is educated on the advantages of opting for Linux, including its economic and technical advantages,” says Tewfik Zitouni, managing director at Opennet Middle East & Africa. Opennet MEA, established in late 2003 in Dubai Internet City, works closely with companies through its channel partner network and has developed a highly successful Red Hat Linux training and education centre. Furthermore, at Gitex Saudi Arabia the spotlight will be on promoting the value of open source technology to enterprises concerned with flexible, open IT infrastructures. As one of the most trusted Linux providers to the enterprise in the region, and a leader in the open source community, Red Hat has key industry relationships with top hardware and software vendors like Dell, Intel, HP, and Oracle, and claims to provides solutions for organisations no longer satisfied with overpriced, under-performing proprietary platforms. Gitex provides the perfect opportunity for Opennet to exhibit its range of enterprise Linux operating system products, which are backed by the Red Hat Network, management platforms, and comprehensive services. Visitors will be able to learn about the variety of consulting and engineering services on offer, from complete Linux migration to client-directed engineering and custom software development, all of which are aimed at making Middle East enterprise open source deployments successful.
