Tech Data is pushing Caldera’s open source offerings to the region as it aims to bring high performance computing to the Middle East’s smaller companies. Intel is also onboard as it looks to further its open source credentials and enhance market share in the low end of the market.

Ralph de Villiers, Caldera’s regional manager, believes that by deploying an Intel/Caldera solution the region’s small-to-medium sized businesses can achieve the computing power of larger enterprises, such as Emirates Airlines.

“The region’s small to medium businesses can today have the same powerful computing capabilities that Aramco and Emirates Airlines enjoy, however with smaller budgets,” he says.

According to Intel, the combination will not only help companies improve their computing power but it will allow then to scale more effectively in the future. Frances Furtado, software business unit manager at Tech Data, adds that it also means that local organisations will also have more choice when it comes to operating systems.
