UAE-based cloud and managed IT service provider BIOS Middle East has established a new cloud footprint in Muscat in order to serve customers in the Sultanate.
Muscat’s new cloud footprint joins previous ones in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Riyadh, and Jeddah, creating the Middle East’s first truly Region-wide Cloud. As a result of the move, the UAE’s leading cloud services provider now offers broader digital transformation services across the GCC region.
The new cloud zone allows Omani businesses to store all of their data within the country’s boundaries, allowing them to meet regulatory standards in a variety of industries while also expediting their preparation to fulfill the goals of Oman Vision 2040.
According to the statement, “In addition to serving customers in Oman, the cloud footprint will also provide customers in surrounding GCC countries such as Bahrain, Kuwait, and Qatar with the ability to do out of the country in region Disaster Recovery as a Service.”
“As well as having strong internal demand for cloud services that we are keen to serve, Oman has long been considered the Switzerland of the Middle East when it comes to telecommunications, making it an excellent location for in-region out of country Disaster Recovery for companies around the Gulf. Cloud services have proved their worth since the outbreak of the pandemic, facilitating digital transformation for companies in every industry. Our expansion into Oman will support public and private sector organizations to lower IT costs and improve productivity.”
