Zain Kuwait has collaborated with IBM to launch cloud disaster recovery (Cloud DR).
Zain Cloud DR will enable Zain’s corporate customers to benefit from IBM’s cloud-based disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS). Customers will further benefit from the added flexibility of keeping their data on the IBM cloud locally within the country.
Zain Kuwait’s CEO Eaman Al Roudhan said: “Together with IBM, and through our new Zain Cloud DR service, we aim to provide our customers with a solid and reliable solution to implement their resiliency and continuity strategies as well as address their changing and unique needs. We continuously offer the latest innovations and services that are tailored to match the needs and expectations of our corporate customers, as well as to reinforce our commitment towards enhancing the portfolio of services we offer to the corporate segment”.
Amr Refaat, GM, IBM Middle East and Pakistan, said: “Unplanned downtime or data loss is a risk any business can face. Not only can this lead to business loss but present a threat to a company’s reputation amongst its customers, stakeholders, and the wider public. Having a resiliency plan in place should play an integral part in every business. Through the new Cloud DR service, Zain customers can run their operations at ease, while we provide around-the-clock monitoring of the recovery environments.”
