Abu Dhabi Investment Council (ADIC) the investment arm of the government of Abu Dhabi has recently completed the set up of a business continuity site through the installation of a redundant data center. The implementation of the site was completed by a team of specialists from Alpha Data, UAE's leading multi-disciplined systems integrator.
The Council, responsible for investing part of the government's surplus financial resources, requires fully functional operations on a 24 X 7 X 365 basis. Their IT team tasked Alpha Data with equipping their business continuity site to ensure a highly available, resilient network with zero down-time. In the event of any critical issues or unforeseen disaster we needed a site that would be operational within minimal time of our head offices closing, said a representative of ADIC. "Now with our redundant site, we have replication protection systems which will ensure that data captured up to the last minute at our head offices can be secured in the redundant site."
"Alpha Data has worked with ADIC since their inception and we had provided their entire technology infrastructure and data centre for the head offices," said ِAmar Singh, Division Manager - Enterprise Computing Systems, Alpha Data. "We were delighted to be able to partner with them again and provide a full infrastructure for their business continuity site. We've installed a number of back-up systems which mean that information is duplicated both at ADIC's head offices and at the redundant site."
