Zain Bahrain, a leading telecommunications provider in the Kingdom of Bahrain, has successfully deployed a new cloud based enterprise software solution which resulted in higher operational efficiency. The Nutanix Enterprise Cloud OS software, combined with the Nutanix AHV hypervisor, allows the operator to rapidly analyse data, leading to better decision making and freeing up resources so that Zain Bahrain can focus on its key strength – innovating new products and services for its customers.

The Nutanix Enterprise Cloud OS software combines computation, storage, and virtualisation, as well as providing analytics, allowing for further business optimisation. It offers efficiency and has practically no limitation on scalability, a key priority for Zain Bahrain as it optimizes its future growth model. Nutanix allows Zain Bahrain to utilize its ‘pay-as-you-grow’ feature to meet these growth requirements. Also by selecting the Nutanix AHV hypervisor, Zain Bahrain is able to significantly reduce the licensing cost for virtualisation, as it comes free of charge with the deployment.

“Following a careful evaluation of our objectives and business plans, we decided that the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud OS software is equipped with the flexibility and scalability we need to support our ambitious growth strategy,” said Zain Bahrain Acting Technology Director, Salah Jalal. “The Nutanix solution allows us to operate a leaner IT infrastructure for a more seamless and efficient operation, at a reduced cost. For example, the total cost of ownership was reduced significantly by 55% compared to traditional storage solutions.”

“This robust, high performance and scalable platform requires minimum management and maintenance. The result is a reduction in data centre management man-hours and huge cost savings on individual server maintenance. Following this successful deployment in Bahrain, Zain expects to roll out the solution across all seven of its operations in the Middle East,” added Jalal.

“We are delighted to see that the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud OS software has helped industry leaders such as Zain Bahrain to modernise its data centre for better efficiency and rapid growth,” commented Nicolas Leblanc, Senior Director of Emerging Markets and Eastern Europe for Nutanix. “It is crucial to the end-customers that Zain can analyse data quickly and accurately, and this requires a robust, high performance and scalable solution with minimum management and maintenance hassles. Our software can take care of that, so our customers can focus on delivering business values, rather than worrying about keeping the infrastructure lights on.”
