aleel Holdings, BIOS ink agreement for managed cloud services

UAE-based investment company Jaleel Holdings has entered into an agreement for managed cloud services with BIOS, a cloud service provider in the UAE, the company said.

Jaleel Holding´s several sites across the UAE will connect to CloudHPT in Dubai and Abu Dhabi.

Being a multi-profile holding company that runs operations across a wide range of industries, Jaleel Holdings counts on full-time infrastructure and application availability. As the company runs 24/7 operations and works with very large number of transactions each day, downtime and data loss are critical to the continuity of the business.

The locally based servers of CloudHPT allow BIOS to provide around-the-clock monitoring, analysis, service management and offer a complete availability of hosted applications.

CloudHPT is a Cisco-powered cloud in the UAE which utilizes the latest Cisco UCS technology. Being built on high-performance technology (HPT), CloudHPT uses some of the most modern innovations in the industry including VMware and Cisco´s application-centric infrastructure (ACI), to deliver the most advanced cloud platform in the Middle East region.

Headquartered in Dubai, Jaleel Holdings is now an AED 1.3bn top line company with strong presence in trading and distribution of fast moving consumer goods (FMCG). Jaleel Holdings owns Jaleel Cash & Carry (the largest FMCG wholesaler in the UAE), Jaleel Distribution and J Mart supermarkets.

Jaleel Holdings has also interests in the education and industrial solutions sectors. Jaleel Distribution is a significant component of Jaleel Holdings, offering a high degree of personalized service to the region´s most prestigious customers including hypermarkets, supermarkets, groceries, convenience stores, hotels, restaurants and other institutions.

BIOS is a system integrator and cloud provider based in the UAE.
