Etisalat Digital has announced a deal with Massar Solutions, a UAE-based fleet management firm, for Etisalat’s OneCloud Services.

Etisalat OneCloud offers an on-demand subscription to a pool of configurable shared and dedicated multi-tenant computing resources. This end-to-end managed cloud solution includes infrastructure-as-a-service, managed security services, managed backup, managed applications and managed disaster recovery services.

Said Massar Solutions managing director Fahim Mohamed Al Shehhi: “Outsourcing of private cloud hosting functions will provide significant value to Massar Solutions in the long term by helping the organisation reduce operational expenses, maintain our competitive position and more importantly, improve efficiency, transparency and resilience through new technology.”

Miguel Angel Villalonga, cloud and data centre vice president at Etisalat Digital, expanded on Al Shehhi’s words. “With Etisalat’s corporate strategy focusing on driving the digital future, we are working closely with all our customers and partners to transform their businesses by investing in digital services and solutions. We recognise that these organisations want to leverage the cloud’s ever-expandable and always available infrastructure to speed up the delivery and reliability of new and existing applications.”

As part of the agreement, Etisalat will host Massar’s fleet management application on its cloud in the UAE.
