Sheikh Abdulla Al-Rawahy’s main message

Oman Telecom Innovation

25-26 September 2017

Under the patronage of Ministry of Transport and Telecommunication

Sheik Abdulla Al Rawahy opened this forum by saying: “it is time to stop talking and to start working”. This strong message was warmly welcomed by the audience including high level people from the ministry, government, telecom operators, public and private companies.

For the first time in Oman, Sheikh Abdulla introduces the concept of SD-WAN (Software Defined Wide Area Network) which enabled enterprises to communicate with their data centers in a secure and manageable way. Connected to SDN (Software Defined Network) and NFV (Network Function Virtualization), enterprises can benefit from a secured and segregated VDC (Virtual Data Center) on the cloud while sitting in their office.

Once these technologies are combined with virtualization at processing and storage layer, enterprises can finally benefit fully from hosting and cloud providers.

Cloud Acropolis, the Omani Cloud and Data Center service provider, is the first Cloud company having this entire virtual combination, offering its services to Oman and then to the rest of the world. Companies can have their Secured and Segregated VDC in Cloud Acropolis while managing it via SD-WAN from their HQ or branch offices.

Beside SDN, NFV and SD-WAN, Cloud Acropolis Cloud Servers and Virtual Machines, combined with virtual Storage systems can provide the highest availability, reliability and of course manageability to the 4 corners of the world at a minimum cost.

Cloud Acropolis has now pioneered Oman IT services worldwide, thus making Oman present on the IT world map. Sheikh Abdulla hoped the rest of IT companies, especially Omani ones, to use Cloud Acropolis platform to enter into international market.
