Bank AlJazira upgrades Saudi data centres with Siemon
Bank AlJazira has commissioned infrastructure specialist Siemon to supply the IT infrastructure for new data centres across Saudi Arabia as part of its strategy for growth and to secure technical advantage.
Siemon was selected as the supplier of choice in a competitive tender with two other industry-leading manufacturers. According to Ahmed Al Hassan, head of IT at Bank AlJazira:“Siemon presented the most impressive data centre designs for our Jeddah and Riyadh sites and Siemon’s proposed solution performed best against the high standard set by our specification.”
Following Siemon’s recommendation, BT Al Saudia was chosen by the bank to deliver the project, which focuses on both its main and disaster recovery data centres.
The bank has specified a shielded cabling solution for superior performance and security properties, along with the greatest lifespan and highest return on investment
