EIM Hosting Services and Dell Computer Corporation sign deal at GITEX
Dell Computer Corporation and Emirates Internet and Multimedia (EIM), the ISP business unit of Etisalat, announced a strategic deal to promote EIM Hosting Service. Under the agreement, Dell Computer Corporation will offer EIM Hosting Customers up to 15 percent off hardware, software and professional services to provide an end-to-end solution for customer’s full outsourcing requirements.
The EIM Hosting Service offers customers two solutions, colocation and telehousing. Co-location allows corporate customers to rent space at the eDC in the form of cabinets, secure cages or enclosures in which to install their own server, which is provided with electricity, and high-speed connectivity to the Global Internet. Telehousing customers can choose the same options, but will interconnect their equipment directly to disaster recovery centers or any other location they wish.
EIM is the Internet service provider arm of Etisalat and was launched in March 2000. Emirates Internet and Multimedia has consistently introduced innovative products including BusinessOne and Al-Shamil, the high speed ADSL Internet connections, online registrations, Pre-paid, ‘dial ‘n’ surf’ and Albahhar portal. Today the United Arab Emirates (UAE) has more than 945,000 users, placing the country in the top 20 most Internet wired countries in the world. — (menareport.com)
