US-based IT giant EMC is set to deploy "mission-critical" IT infrastructure for Palestine's incumbent telecom operator, Paltel Group.
EMC will deploy its VMAX and Data Domain deduplication storage systems, all with a multi layer security solution, for Paltel.
"The implemented EMC solution introduces a revolutionary infrastructure created to match the current and future requirements of Paltel Group in maintaining their competitive edge and customer service," said Habib Mahakian, area manager, EMC, North Gulf region.
He added that EMC designed a "tailor-made" solution to suit Paltel's specific business needs and improve data protection while reducing total cost of ownership.
The new storage infrastructure is designed to reduce the total cost of ownership both from initial capital expenditure and ongoing operational costs by using EMC's FAST VP, a fully automated storage tiering system.
The end-to-end storage infrastructure is secured with security technology from RSA, the security division of EMC, making it suitable for the most critical business environments.
"Paltel selected EMC because we believe in its cutting edge technologies and expertise. We are committed to offering first class services to our customers as well as upgrading the level of technical know-how of the ICT sector in Palestine through bringing such renowned vendors to our market," said Ammar Aker, CEO of Paltel Group.
