Ooredoo Maldives has launched the first-ever tier-3 ready Data Centre in the Maldives, providing unparalleled connectivity, storage, security and support systems for IT-based services and operations, designed to provide reliability and safety for all types of customer segments. Located in the emerging smart city of Hulhumale’, Ooredoo Maldives Data Centre (OMDC) is a world-class-state-of-the-art Data Centre that anticipates bolstering a quick and easy transition to new technologies supporting Maldivian and regional businesses from across government, corporate and the hospitality sector.
Digital revolution across the globe has rapidly transformed the way we live today. The global business community, from SME’s to large corporations, has become exceedingly data-driven and dependent on digital services, making the IT infrastructure of the institutions vital for operations. Technological advancements such as virtualization and cloud computing in the data hosting market are anticipated to be an indication of the maturity, transformation, and growth of the business. However, to build an on-premise data centre infrastructure companies will have to commit large amounts of investments, coupled with high maintenance costs. Hence global data centre services as OMDC play a crucial role in powering this growing demand for cloud services across enterprises.
Najib Khan, Managing Director and CEO, Ooredoo Maldives said: “Today marks a historical day for Ooredoo Maldives, as we inaugurate the first ever Data Centre in the Maldives. The global data centre services market is foreseen to attract tremendous growth in the near future. The growing requirement of large computing facilities and surging demand for capacity management are envisaged to bring in a host of opportunities for data center services. We believe that the Maldives can potentially offer very high availability for all types of Data Centre services, connecting local and regional businesses to uninterrupted connectivity and unlimited possibilities by eliminating geographical challenges, ensuring business continuity and stable growth. With this important step towards a truly Digital Maldives, our aim is to establish Maldives as a technological hub in the region.”
