Palestinian GSM900 operator Jawwal has invested in an EMC Symmetrix DMX800 information storage system as part of an overall business continuity strategy. In a move aimed at creating an information lifecycle management infrastructure with a disaster recovery solution, Jawwal has invested in a Symmetrix storage system with two EMC Connectrix DS-32M2 switches to create a fully redundant storage area network with two fabrics. The company will utilise its new EMC system to host its main billing application (Alpha True64 Cluster), data warehousing application, and comprehensive email infrastructure. “Over the past few years we have learned the value of having a clear and concise IT roadmap in place, and one that is built around such contingents as disaster recovery. With the EMC disaster recovery solution we feel confident that our information is secure and accessible should any unforeseen events take place,” said Awni Zubdeh, chief technical officer of Jawwal. Connecting the EMC office in Dubai to the Palestinian Authority’s telecoms headquarters in Ramallah for a remote installation, the EMC team used one PC terminal as the main base to reach all other components of the solution. Access to the terminal was established using PC Anywhere. Pictorial feedback was used to complete all necessary hardware set-ups that could not be carried out remotely and the entire installation was completed in a just five days.
