Edge data center firm Armadathis week announced a strategic collaboration with Edarat Group, a data center engineering consulting and cloud services firm in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. Following the terms of this partnership, Edarat Group will deploy Armada's modular data centers, known as Galleons, across the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) and MENA region.

"This partnership with Edarat Group marks a significant step in our commitment to enabling key industries to enhance their processing and decision-making capabilities on a truly global scale,” said Armada CTO, Pradeep Nair. “We’re excited to build upon Edarat’s achievements in connectivity and data center innovation and address the growing need for decentralized, real-time data analysis across oil and gas, manufacturing, and emergency response enterprises, among others. We look forward to working together and bringing the power of generative AI and predictive models to even the most remote industrial sites across [the] Middle East and North Africa.”

Ghassan El Khazen, Edarat’s CTO, added: “By combining the scalability and flexibility of EdaratCloud with the speed and efficiency of Edge computing, we can provide clients with a comprehensive solution that optimizes performance and user experience. The integration of EdaratCloud and the Galleon allows for real-time data processing closer to the source, reducing latency and enhancing overall system reliability.”
