Qatar Airways has moved its primary and backup data into to Ooredoo's cloud-hosting platform.

The airline has chosen to use Ooredoo's hosting services to enable it to deploy the latest generation of cloud backup and security solutions quickly and cost-effectively, in a flexible and scalable manner. The shift to cloud will also help Qatar Airways to manage growing volumes of data as the airline expands.

As part of the migration, Qatar Airways has moved its systems and infrastructure to the world-class Ooredoo Data Centre

The cloud-hosting platform, which was launched recently in partnership with Microsoft offers a host of features including advanced cyber security, customer relationship management and file-sharing applications all on Ooredoo's network.

The opening of the hosting area in Ooredoo's Qatar Data Centre 5 (QDC5) in Mesaimeer was attended by senior officials from both companies including Sheikh Saud Bin Nasser Al Thani, CEO, Ooredoo Qatar; His Excellency Akbar Al Baker, Group Chief Executive of Qatar Airways; and Waleed Al Sayed, COO, Ooredoo Qatar.

Sheikh Saud Bin Nasser Al Thani, CEO, Ooredoo Qatar, said: "Ooredoo has a strong working relationship with Qatar Airways and this partnership gives us a perfect chance to demonstrate our leadership in the field of data storage and business technology through our work with one of Qatar's leading companies. Qatar Airways has shown great confidence in our network by moving both their primary and backup data to Ooredoo and we look forward to working more with them in the future."

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Akbar Al Baker, said: "I would like to express my gratitude to Ooredoo and my team from Qatar Airways who have successfully completed the seamless transfer of Qatar Airways systems and infrastructure to this new state-of-the-art Ooredoo Data Centre facility, without any disruption to the 24/7 operations of Qatar Airways. This move demonstrates the confidence and commitment we place in Ooredoo as a business partner, and it is my hope that this partnership will continue to grow over the years to come, as our airline continues its global expansion."
