BIOS Middle East has announced it has established a new cloud footprint in Muscat, Oman, to serve customers in the Sultanate. In addition to serving customers in Oman, the cloud footprint will also provide customers in surrounding GCC countries such as Bahrain, Kuwait, and Qatar with the ability to do out of the country in region Disaster Recovery as a Service.
“As well as having strong internal demand for cloud services that we are keen to serve, Oman has long been considered the Switzerland of the Middle East when it comes to telecommunications, making it an excellent location for in-region out of country Disaster Recovery for companies around the Gulf,” said Adam Wolf, Technical Director, BIOS Middle East.
The new cloud footprint in Muscat complements existing cloud footprints already available in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Riyadh, and Jeddah creating the Middle East’s first truly Region-wide Cloud. With the move, the UAE’s #1 provider of cloud services now supports extended digital transformation services across the GCC. The new cloud zone enables companies in Oman to keep all their data within the borders of the country, meeting compliance requirements for many business sectors, while also accelerating their readiness towards meeting the goals of Oman Vision 2040.
BIOS Middle East brings its ISO-certified cloud to organisations across Oman, offering regional expertise in Infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and Disaster Recovery as a service (DRaaS). BIOS Middle East will operate datacentres in the key commercial centre of Muscat will continue to service organisations all over the country as they look to streamline operations and launch new digital services.
Following the successful model from the UAE and Saudi Arabia, BIOS aims to help its customers in Oman and the wider region to eliminate their IT capital costs and dramatically reduce their operational costs while achieving a better service level. “Cloud services have proved their worth since the outbreak of the pandemic, facilitating digital transformation for companies in every industry. Our expansion into Oman will support public and private sector organizations to lower IT costs and improve productivity,” said Wolf.
