Qatar Computing Research Institution (QCRI), the national research institute for computing, has deployed solutions from VMware to boost its ability to support complex computer research and help drive Qatar’s knowledge economy.
Qatar’s ICT sector is expected to grow by 2.3% a year to reach a value of $4.4bn in 2021, according to statistics from Qatar’s Ministry of Transport and Communications (MoTC).
QCRI deployed cloud and networking solutions from VMware, enabling it to rapidly expand capacity for its research projects, while also giving researchers the ability to build complex computing environments.

The organisation deployed vCloud Suite and NSX software-defined networking solution as the foundation of its scalable virtual environment to help end-users manage their cloud approach and give agility for hybrid cloud outlooks.
“Computing has brought disruptive innovation to our daily lives – transforming the way we interact with each other, enabling new discoveries and accelerating the development of global society,” said QCRI executive director Dr Ahmed K Elmagarmid.
“At QCRI, we have created a vibrant research environment that facilitates this progression and that positions Qatar as a leader in advancing research and technology,” he added.
With computing research essential to all aspects of IT development, QCRI was established in 2010 by Qatar Foundation (QF) for Education, Science and Community Development and has since become one of the largest computing research institutions outside the US.
