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.
