Arab Petroleum Investments Corporation now operate 'disk-to-disk-to-tape' system
Pro Technology Saudi Arabia has installed an advanced data back-up system for Arab Petroleum Investments Corporation (Apicorp).
Apicorp can now operate a ‘disk-to-disk-to-tape’ solution within its KSA branch while creating a tape library for disaster use in the Bahrain branch, which will provide the necessary data to rebuild the crashed servers over a short period of time, according to Pro Technology.
“With data protection emerging as one of the most important issues in today’s business landscape, we have fully recognised the importance of its effective management to ensure a high level of credibility across all aspects of our operations,” said Mohammed Elkhouly, IT manager at Apicorp.
“We are aware that the loss of business-critical information may lead to serious implications, which is why we have chosen to partner with a leading data protection solutions provider such as Pro Technology Saudi Arabia. We are thoroughly impressed with the solution that has been delivered to us, which simplified the data back-up process while providing us with a sense of data protection in terms of safeguarding sensitive business information,” he added.
Apicorp is the only financial institution in the Arab world that specialises in providing finance for the oil and gas industries in the region. In addition, the corporation also manages finance for the transportation and storage of oil, gas and petrochemicals.
Its main activities include financing of exports of crude oil, petrochemicals, gas and other refined products from the Middle East, as well as Arab imports of oil-related equipment, machinery and services.
