BIOS Middle East has grown its regional cloud presence with a new offering in Oman. The company announced the establishment of a new cloud footprint in Muscat, Oman, to service the Sultanate’s clients. In addition to supporting clients in Oman, the cloud footprint will enable customers in neighboring GCC nations such as Bahrain, Kuwait, and Qatar to perform out-of-country 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 adds current cloud footprints already available in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Riyadh, and Jeddah, establishing the Middle East’s first genuinely Region-wide Cloud. As a result of the move, the UAE’s leading cloud services provider now offers broader digital transformation services across the GCC. The new cloud zone allows Omani businesses to store all of their data within the country’s boundaries, allowing them to meet regulatory standards in a variety of industries while also expediting their preparation to meet the goals of Oman Vision 2040.
BIOS Middle East, a Gartner-recognized vendor, offers its ISO-certified cloud to businesses throughout Oman, as well as regional expertise in Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS). BIOS Middle East will continue to service organisations all throughout the country as they look to optimise operations and develop new digital services from data centers in Muscat’s important commercial centre.
BIOS seeks to assist its customers in Oman and the wider area in eliminating their IT capital costs and drastically reducing their operational costs while attaining a higher service level, based on the successful model used in the UAE and Saudi Arabia.
“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 Adam Wolf
