V2 partners with Cloud Sigma and HPE to launch public cloud offerings
Solution provider Virtual Vision (V2), has announced the launch of its public cloud services in Saudi Arabia.
The company will be offering public cloud services including storage, virtualisation and disaster recovery-as-a-service.
V2 is launching the services in partnership with Cloud Sigma and Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE).
"This is an important milestone for the development of ICT infrastructure here in Saudi Arabia, where it is projected that cloud computing will grow by 25% by 2022 as a result of the expansion of the digital economy and smart government," said Hazem Sandouka, chief operating officer at Virtual Vision. "We are proud to be advancing the objectives of Saudi Vision 2030 and addressing the needs of our customers through the provision of a comprehensive expansion of data services that will help modernize local businesses and drive innovation across sectors as they embrace the agility and scalability V2 Public Cloud."
Mohammed Al-Kharouf, chief executive officer at Virtual Vision said: "Our investments in cloud computing are a reflection of the growing demand in the GCC and wider Middle East for cloud services. Being able to offer a locally based public cloud solution is appealing to both corporate and government clients that want the benefits of this new technology but need to keep data locally for compliance or logistical reasons. Through the development and launch of V2 Public Cloud we hope to support and expedite the ongoing regional transition to cloud computing and deliver superior value to our customers."
A member of the HPE-sponsored Cloud28+, V2 will also publish its cloud services as part of the community's business solutions catalog. With more than 750 members and 26,000 services available, Cloud28+ helps unite customers with partners by focusing on matching workload and business needs to the right local expertise and support. As part of the KSA group on Cloud28+, V2 is contributing to raising the profile of local service providers and the expansion of innovation through technology both in the country and beyond.
Xavier Poisson Gouyou Beauchamps, vice president of Service Providers and Cloud28+ Worldwide at Hewlett Packard Enterprise said: "We are working with V2 to bring our extensive portfolio of cloud services and infrastructure to customers in Saudi Arabia and the wider GCC region. Our partnership with V2, and our collaboration through Cloud28+, will allow us to together deliver the comprehensive solutions that businesses and organizations need to grow and adapt to today's digital landscape."
