STME implements storage solution at SHUAA Capital

Arab investment bank, SHUAA Capital, claims its latest data storage solution, sourced through regional storage integrator STME, will increase performance and lower the costs of managing information within its high-growth IT infrastructure.

STME, a Middle East enterprise storage solution provider and integrator, has announced the successful implementation of a data storage and replication solution based on iSCSI SAN technology for SHUAA Capital.

The bank required a storage strategy capable of consolidating vital company information, automating data backup and eliminating the need for multiple resources to manage its data.

“We were looking to consolidate our data systems while providing higher performance. This solution from STME was able to address both requirements, and added better availability and data management in the process. We liked working with STME because of their professionalism, and their regional reach covers our growth footprint,” said Samer Hamwi, CIO at SHUAA Capital.

STME’s involvement included an assessment of initial requirements, solution design, implementation, and on-going support. The company also provided targeted support services during the project to help SHUAA Capital deliver on its long and short-term business objectives.

Jocelyn Al Adwani, CTO at STME, said: “In addition to addressing the need for a durable solution that could handle extended periods of high traffic while maintaining high availability and security, the functionality of the final solution meant that it tackled different business needs and enabled SHUAA Capital to enjoy a host of short-term and long-term benefits including backup, availability, and rapid recovery times.”

In the short term, the bank has consolidated storage in three sites in the UAE and facilitated data replication from two production sites to a stand-by site.
