Meeza, a local IT services and solutions provider, is planning to hold a soft launching of MV (vault) 2, the largest of the three data centre in the country.

The IT company is also planning to expand operations and services at the Qatar Science and Technology Park (QSTP). This is  to further improve its products and services such as Back Up Solutions, Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity.

Sitting on a 3,000sq m lot, the centre in Al Khor now has 40% occupancy, Meeza’s CEO Ghada Philip El-Rassi told Gulf Times at the opening day of the third Qatar ICT Conference and Exhibition (QITCOM) 2014.

“We started with one data centre occupying 1,000sq m, which we call MV (vault) 1 and later established the second which we now call MV3,” she said. Both centres are located at the QSTP.

All its three MVs are built and designed to meet the requirements of the Uptime Institute Tier III Data Centre Classification, according to its website. This is to ensure and provide the maximum availability and resilience for its clients.

While disasters, whether natural or man-made, can significantly wreak havoc in the whole operation of an organisation or business, she stressed the importance of back ups that effectively secure and recover data.

“Every organisation supposedly has to be prepared with disasters like fire, natural disasters or something that will stop the work,” said the CEO.

She pointed out that their existing clients have expressed support to implement Disaster Recovery in their system.

Meeza has started providing a programme known as ‘Smart services for Smart Cities’ for its Msheireb and Education City projects.

“It is a very important programme, maybe few or if not we are the only one in Qatar which has this programme. We are now in phase two,” added El-Rassi.

About cyber security and cyber threats, she said people and organisations should expect both will grow with “the proliferation of technology.” “We are expecting it and it is not becoming a taboo subject.”

Earlier reports have revealed that thousands of malwares and cyber attacks in the region have been recorded.
