Managed IT Services Provider to Participate in IDC Cloud Computing and Data Centre Roadshow 2011

Dubai-UAE: 30 April, 2011 – Enterprises in the region have realised the value of

Cloud Computing technologies in the data centre as a result of their increased focus

on business productivity, cost cutting and driving efficiencies with their existing

infrastructure, according to Yasser Zeineldin, CEO at eHosting DataFort.

He added the trend is backed by new developments created by the economic

downturn that have directly impacted IT budgets and led to the consolidation

of IT infrastructure. Organisations have also had to deal with a rapidly growing

mobile workforce that has critically augmented the importance of cloud computing

technologies and solutions.

Zeineldin’s comments coincide with eHosting DataFort’s partnership with IDC Cloud

Computing and Data Center Roadshow, organised by the global research and

advisory firm International Data Corporation (IDC).

To be held on 2 May at the Grand Habtoor in Dubai, this year’s roadshow will share

latest perspectives on new ‘cloud-enabled’ IT models that leverage software-as-a-

service (SaaS), ‘mash-up’ application models, next generation on-premise systems,

and large global solution marketplaces for ‘democratising’ IT access.

Yasser Zeineldin, CEO at eHosting DataFort, said: “Customers are increasingly

beginning to realize the benefits of cloud computing and want to upgrade

their current IT infrastructure to be able to derive benefits such as on-demand

scalability, reduced hardware infrastructure costs and simplified management of

the IT infrastructure and all this on a subscription based “pay as you go model”.

Towards this objective, enterprises are looking at adopting new-age technologies

that provide long-term value and reduce the complexity of their current IT

The half-day IDC Cloud Computing and Data Center Roadshow will highlight end-

user case studies and presentations from industry-leading experts, supported by

IDC's research and analysis of cloud, data centre and virtualization trends in the

Middle East. It will also provide an ideal industry platform to engage and map out

areas of concern, as well as explore ways to increase efficiency, reduce costs,

innovate, and enhance business competitiveness.

clock managed operations, eHosting DataFort has established itself as a market
