Eastern Networks provides tailor-made solutions for Middle East banks
Eastern Networks will be providing banks in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Qatar, Pakistan and Jordan with a High Availability/Data Replication (HA/DR) solution tailor made for them, aimed at ensuring that a safe and reliable copy of the SWIFTAlliance database is always available.
Having evaluated various solutions in the market, Eastern Networks selected software based on Legato's Co-Standby and Octopus software, as the best solution recommended for SWIFTAlliance users.
High-Availability is a mandatory feature for the growing list of mission-critical applications. Unbroken information access is essential to a company's business success. Virtually any amount of Information Technology (IT) downtime can mean lost productivity, lost revenue, lost customers, lost opportunities.
That means banks need to be prepared for the full range of threats to the availability and stability of their core infrastructure. Threats ranging from communications disruptions, application problems, and unexpected peaks in customer traffic, to full-scale disasters.
Traditionally, high-availability was provided through specialized fault-tolerant hardware, which is very expensive, or clustering software, which requires expertise to implement and manage.
Eastern Networks has provided banks with a cost-effective, simple to deploy, high availability solution, which requires no changes to the application. In addition, it does not require clustering software, does not require additional or specialized hardware, and will demonstrate significant value in a very short period of time.
Eastern Networks has been a pioneer in introducing data integration and communication technologies throughout the Middle East for the past 20 years. Eastern Networks' regional operations are managed through offices in Amman, Jordan; Dubai Internet City, UAE; Istanbul, Turkey and Sofia, Bulgaria. — (menareport.com)
