At BankDhofar, we are keen on embracing the future, as we are always looking for ways to stay ahead of the curve. Therefore, adopting state-of-the-art solutions provided by our partner, Omantel, is key towards streamlining our operations and [to] be more agile in a dynamic market while at the same time ensure maximum data security. I am confident that this partnership will bear fruit, and it will foster cloudification among large entities.”

As a major step forward for streamlining the bank’s operations, Oman Data Park’s General Manager of Business Development, Hassan Abdul Ali, explained, “We have empowered BankDhofar with disaster recovery capabilities across Tier III data centers and cloud, and this is a game-changer as it will automate the disaster recovery procedures, significantly reduce data recovery time, and enable BCP operation anytime, anywhere. Moreover, the bank will have the agility and flexibility that is needed to stay competitive. It can handle peak loads with ease and without any service disruptions, thanks to the elasticity of the cloud.”
