New Internet Data Centre Planned for Saudi Arabia

Saudi Arabia : 24 May 2010

US companies Oracle and DeepCloud have signed a deal, thought to be worth $133 million, with Saudi run Madinah Knowledge Economic City, to provide the Middle East region with a new internet data facility which will cover 30,000 square meters of the holy city.

The resource will be used as a site for disaster recovery for both private enterprise and the public sector and will be owned and operated by DeepCloud with the technology and site design supplied by Oracle.

Described by the Saudi’s as ‘cyber-technology’ for the next generation, KEC said the centre will offer a ‘critical infrastructure’ for assisting businesses to run their IT operations in the future.
