DOHA, QATAR – July 12, 2015 — / — Ooredoo and Qatar Airways have expanded their strategic partnership, with the national airline moving both its primary and backup data to Ooredoo’s cloud-hosting platform.

The move to Ooredoo’s first-of-its-kind cloud-hosting platform will enable Qatar Airways to deploy the latest generation of cloud backup and security solutions quickly and cost-effectively, in a flexible and scalable manner. As Qatar Airways continues to pursue its ambitious strategy of global growth, Ooredoo’s technology will enable the airline to manage growing volumes of data with confidence.

Qatar Airways has shown great confidence in our network by moving both their primary and backup data to Ooredoo and we look forward to working more with them in the future.”

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, said: “I would like to express my gratitude to Ooredoo and my team from Qatar Airways who have successfully completed the seamless transfer of Qatar Airways systems and infrastructure to this new state-of-the-art Ooredoo Data Centre facility, without any disruption to the 24/7 operations of Qatar Airways. This move demonstrates the confidence and commitment we place in Ooredoo as a business partner, and it is my hope that this partnership will continue to grow over the years to come, as our airline continues its global expansion.”

The cloud-hosting platform, which was launched recently in partnership with Microsoft offers a host of features including advanced cyber security, customer relationship management and file-sharing applications all on Ooredoo’s bigger and faster network.
