DOHA, Qatar--(BUSINESS WIRE)--MEEZA, the leading IT services and solutions provider in Qatar, announced that its latest and biggest data centre to date, M-VAULT 2, with a total building area of 10,000 m2 is now fully operational and offering access to MEEZA’s full portfolio of services.

Built in accordance with the highest global standards, MEEZA’s M-VAULT 2 is the first data centre of its kind in the MENA region. The new data centre offers an unprecedented level of flexibility and reliability in the region, enabling businesses to benefit from greater efficiency and reduced risk. The facility is certified by the Uptime Institute as a Tier III data centre offering a guaranteed uptime of 99.98%.

“With the commercial availability of M-VAULT 2, MEEZA takes a big leap forward in its capability to deliver end-to-end business continuity and disaster recovery solutions. This is now available to organisations in Qatar and across the MENA Region to support their mission-critical applications and specific infrastructure demands in a state–of–the–art environment,” said Ghada Philip El Rassi, CEO of MEEZA.

“MEEZA’s Information Security team provides 24/7 monitoring via its SOC (Security Operation Centre) for all its data centres, hence providing optimum protection against the prying eyes of hackers and cyber-criminal elements,” El Rassi added.

MEEZA’s M-VAULT 2 is a “Green” Data Centre. It is the first and only LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Platinum certified data centre in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region.
