Injazat unveils integrated cloud solution for GCC
‘InCloud’ to deliver a holistic cloud offering combining hybrid, public and private solutions
Injazat Data Systems (Injazat), a regional provider of secure data centre and managed services solutions, has launched ‘InCloud’, an integrated cloud solution that integrates hybrid, public and private model offerings.
InCloud is built on the OpenStack cloud operating environment, allowing for a secure, scalable and elastic cloud Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) offering, and delivered to end-users from Injazat’s Tier IV data centre facility.
The IaaS model will provide limited impact on existing IT budgets with zero CAPEX required and, in the long-term, is set to reduce IT overhead costs.
Injazat will deliver the InCloud service through its network of channel partners and accredited reseller providers.
One of the key benefits of InCloud is the solution being an ‘in country cloud’ tool. Data privacy has become a critical issue world-wide with companies and government bodies often required by law to keep corporate and/or individual data in the country.
Khaled Al Melhi, CEO of Injazat noted the efforts by the UAE government in particular in exploring various regulations to ensure digital data is safeguarded. This is vital as the nation continues to adopt connected, smart services and the country emerges as the business gateway for global enterprises. “Injazat’s InCloud solution builds on our ‘future fit’ approach to business, ensuring that organisations can perform in the best possible way. InCloud is a viable solution to ensure current and future data sovereignty laws are met,” Al Melhi added.
Last year, Injazat joined the global Cloud28+ Alliance, an open community of cloud providers and resellers, system integrators and government entities dedicated to accelerating enterprise cloud adoption.
According to latest data published by Gartner, the public cloud services market in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region reached almost $1 billion in 2016. The forecast for 2017 is projected to grow 22.2 percent to total over $1.2billion, up from $956 million in 2016, and is poised to reach $1.42 billion by 2019.
Complementing Injazat’s existing portfolio of secure IT solutions, applications and managed services, InCloud is set to deliver a cost-effective and easy to use cloud experiences currently available in the market, the company says.
