Emirates Internet and Multimedia/Etisalat enters International hosting market
In a bid to gain market share in the International hosting market, Emirates Internet and Multimedia (EIM), the Internet Service Provider business unit of Etisalat, has announced the launch of their hosting service. Co-location and Telehousing will be the first Internet hosting services to be offered under the EIM Hosting Service brand.
For the first time, both national and international companies and organizations will be offered the use of the new EIM Hosting Service at the Etisalat Data Center (eDC). The eDC will facilitate the operations of customers’ IT Hardware and software in a controlled environment, enabling efficient management of their own applications.
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 servers, provide 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.
The EIM Hosting Service offers a set of services named Remote Hand Service such as power cycling, environmental control, and tape backup insertion. These are just a few of the options available.
The new service is targeted at large corporations who rely heavily on their Internet presence in the region and need to ensure a minimal risk of downtime or security threats. Also, companies who require disaster recovery will find their long sought after facility with the Emirates Internet and Multimedia Hosting Service.
Emirates Internet and Multimedia (EIM) is the Internet service provider arm of Etisalat and was launched in March 2000. Emirates Internet and Multimedia has consistently introduced 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)
