Jordan’s ministry of Digital Economy and Entrepreneurship migrates to Nutanix
The ministry's mandate is to deliver and maintain the Government of Jordan’s digital transformation apparatus for all the country’s public entities
Nutanix announced that Jordan’s Ministry of Digital Economy and Entrepreneurship (MoDEE) has successfully completed its migration to the Nutanix enterprise cloud software as it seeks to digitally transform the Kingdom’s government entities.
“We don't like to call it e-government anymore; it's a digital transformation for Jordan, where we move to a digital economy – where we allow each and every service to be provided digitally and paid for digitally,” said HE Mothanna Gharaibeh, Jordan’s Minister of Digital Economy and Entrepreneurship.
“And this cannot happen without having everything on the cloud quick and efficient. So Nutanix has indeed been a good partner in helping us to deliver this mandate.” Gharaibeh added.
Nutanix will provide its cloud services as for hosting the Jordanian government’s ICT services as it migrates from a managed service model.
“We had problems with updates, upgrades and expansions,” explained Abdallah Al-Farrayih, MoDEE’s Operations Manager. “After moving to the Nutanix Cloud, we could manage all of our infrastructure from a single location – storage, network, virtual machines, everything from a single dashboard.”
Nutanix’s dashboard runs a one click infrastructure management console, Prism, which allows admin to monitor virtual environments.
“With Nutanix, we can easily integrate with many platforms,” Mr. Al-Farrayih added. “And we can use the built-in features in Nutanix related to security and backup.”
Nutanix has mentioned that since the migration, the ministry has noted that one of their government agencies that used to deal with 1,000 concurrent users on their previous infrastructure could now handle up to 3,000.
