Gulf Air bring Dell EMC on board to drive business growth
The national carrier for Bahrain will utilise Dell EMC Data Protection Solutions in an effort to keep its data secure and readily available.
Gulf Air has announced that it has signed an agreement with Dell EMC that will see the implementation of the technology company's Data Domain and Data Protection Suite. The platform will deliver scalable protection for the airline's data, while also providing a stable foundation for supporting rapid data growth.
Dr. Jassim Haji, director of Information Technology, Gulf Air, commented: "As a national carrier with a long heritage of delivering exceptional passenger satisfaction, we are committed to providing our customers with leading-edge products and services - which can be hampered by a lack of real-time data access."
He added: "Data protection and availability solutions help ensure that our current IT environment not only facilitates a high level of data availability, but also extends enhanced data protection and recovery at industry-leading speed. With an eye on the needs of the future, we are immensely pleased to continue working with Dell EMC."
The national carrier of Bahrain expects to soon generate significant volumes of user-generated data, roughly 12% over the next 18 months. To meet this demand, Gulf Air requires a reliable backup and recovery solution, along with robust protection storage.
Dell EMC's data protection and availability solutions consist of Dell EMC Data Domain protection storage, as well as Dell EMC Data Protection Suite software.
Habib Mahakian, Vice President for Gulf & Pakistan at Dell EMC, shared: "With its uninterrupted legacy of customer satisfaction, Gulf Air is staying ahead of the game by prioritising its IT transformation in an increasingly data-driven world. We are proud to support them and their objective of creating a strong foundation for data growth by building further on our strategic relationship.
"We aim to ensure that by leveraging the capabilities offered by Dell EMC's Data Domain and Data Protection Suite solutions, Gulf Air is able to maximise the protection and availability of its IT infrastructure, protect growing volumes of data that will fuel continued growth and deliver best-in-class services."
