Secure Cloud Backup Solution can preempt Data Loss to support the Digital Transformation, Optimise IT Costs, and Scale Up as Business Grows

Doha, Qatar

Ooredoo, the region’s leading enabler of digital business innovation, launches today at QITCOM 2019 a new cloud-based data protection solution, the Ooredoo Cloud Backup Service, for large enterprises, small- and medium-sized enterprises, and small offices to bolster their data protection and secure digital transformation journeys.

Across Qatar, many organisations face challenges when designing, implementing, and managing or supporting their in house data backup and disaster recovery solutions. Organisations often face limited IT resources and budgets to scale up their backup platform.

As Qatar’s organisations face an increase in the amount of data to protect, the Ooredoo Cloud Backup Service provides an elastic, protected, and always-on backup and disaster recovery solution, available at any time and from any location.

One of the biggest business benefits is to optimise IT costs and lower the total cost of ownership by switching from a capex-based model to an opex cloud-based model. Through a self-service control panel, organisations can also configure their backup policies and schedules, define the data retention period, and restore their data within seconds.

Yousuf Abdulla Al Kubaisi, Ooredoo Qatar Chief Operations Officer, said: “By launching our Cloud Backup Service, Qatar’s organisations can trust Ooredoo’s expertise and infrastructure to safeguard and protect their most precious resource: their data. Our customers can use our Cloud Backup Service to easily backup and restore their data in a secure way using encryption, optimise costs, and easily scale up the required backup capacity as their business grows.”

Using the Ooredoo Cloud Backup Service, business customers can backup business critical data – such as files, databases, and applications — from any desktop, laptop, physical or virtual machine. In case of any event, such as human error, server or disk failure, or natural disaster, organisations can then recover their data securely and quickly through a simple click.

Ooredoo’s business customers can rest assured that the Cloud Backup platform is hosted in Ooredoo’s secure Tier 3-certified Qatar Data Centre and the data resides in the State of Qatar in compliance with customers’ data privacy requirements. Furthermore, the Cloud Backup Service is provided as a managed service backed by Ooredoo’s industry leading SLAs.

The Cloud Backup Service is available on a flexible monthly subscription, along with 24/7 expert support.

QITCOM attendees can visit the Ooredoo pavilion, under the theme “Safe Smart Cities,” at QITCOM in Hall number 7, booth number A&B 12, at the Qatar National Convention Centre from 29 October – 1 November.

Business customers can leverage the Ooredoo Advantage, making Ooredoo “Best for Business”, thanks to its breadth and depth of talent, best fixed and mobile networks, broadest portfolio of ICT services and solutions, and trusted partner for 60 years.
