EMC Corporation announced today that Bahraini retail and commercial banking institution BMI Bank has selected a range of EMC technologies for an overhaul of its infrastructure.

The technologies used include EMC VNX unified storage with the EMC FAST Suite, EMC Data Domain deduplication back-up system and EMC SourceOne Email Management for Microsoft Exchange.

BMI Bank said it expects to improve storage performance, simplify system management and reduce OPEX costs with the new infrastructure.

The agreement was signed by the bank's general manager of Support Services Eyad Sater and Habib Mahakian, EMC regional general manager, Gulf and Pakistan, in the presence of senior officials from both parties at the bank's headquarters at the Bahrain World Trade Center.

"As a progressive and dynamic local retail bank, we believe it is imperative to constantly review our IT strategy and bank-wide service levels to enable us to better serve our customers," said Sater.

"As part of this process, we are pleased to leverage technologies from a company like EMC. We expect that our new EMC technologies will help us achieve better levels of performance, data protection and compliance, as well as simplify the management of our infrastructure."

"We're pleased to deliver EMC solutions to BMI Bank that offer leading performance, simplicity and efficiency, optimised for virtual applications," said Wael Mustafa, sales district manager, EMC.

"With EMC VNX unified storage, Data Domain and SourceOne we hope to enable BMI Bank to achieve increased system performance, cost savings and the flexibility to support anticipated growth."
