Alpha Data launches public cloud
Alpha Cloud designed for customers looking to leverage cloud in the UAE
UAE-based systems integrator Alpha Data has launched what it calls the ‘Alpha Cloud', a public cloud service designed for customers in the Emirates.
The announcement makes Alpha Data one of only a handful of private systems integrators in the country to launch a public cloud. When launching the service, the company described its cloud as a secure, scalable and multi-tenant technology architecture and framework. Alpha Data said that its cloud is designed to make hybrid IT simpler, faster and more secure.
"Our Alpha Cloud service packages are tailored to serve UAE customers and involve a very simple onboarding process. Users will be able to purchase our premier cloud services either pre-paid or post-paid," said Murugesan Vaithilingam, services director at Alpha Data.
"Basic cloud services such as compute, storage, and backup can be subscribed to through various plans along with value-added services. Alpha Cloud offers several business services such as private cloud, virtual private cloud and disaster recovery provisioning to implement the cloud services delivery model, with the option of including traditional managed services along with core services."
Farid Abo El Fotouh, another services director at Alpha Data, added: "Alpha Cloud was developed out of our firm desire to meet the needs of our clients who face rapid technological evolution and the shift to cloud-supported operations and services. This latest addition to our portfolio is a result of our close and active engagement with our customers who provided us with valuable insights on the importance of the cloud to their business and how the cloud fits in and supports their core activities."
Alpha Data said that the new service would allow customers to scale on demand, optimise for price, and ensure high performance and business continuity. The company added that the Alpha Cloud would boost governance and control by enhancing security, business resiliency, and delivery.
