Emirates Investment Bank (ELBank) has selected Al-Futtaim Technologies to upgrade its data centre.

Al-Futtaim Technologies will be joined by Dell EMC and its distributor Arrow, to supply, install and configure EIBank's disaster recovery site, as well as servers, storage and back-up, to provide complete data migration from existing storage platforms to Dell EMC Unity 500F All-Flash storage.

Dr. Hayan Sayed, CEO of Al-Futtaim Engineering & Technologies, said: "The Dell EMC Unity All-Flash sets new standards for storage with compelling simplicity, modern design and flexible deployments to meet all the IT needs for large or small companies. Working alongside our partner we were able to showcase the advantages of the server and storage solutions to the EIBank team."

Imad Bou Khouzam, chief financial officer of Emirates Investment Bank, added: "This upgrade of our data centre is important because it will help us maximise operational effectiveness and deliver greater IT efficiency to our clients. We are pleased to be working with Al-Futtaim Technologies and Dell EMC."
