Disaster recovery (DR) is one of the most crucial considerations for growing organisations in the Middle East. And if you are of the calibre of AW Rostamani (AWR), then all the more reason that you feel the need for a reliable DR site.
“AWR is a family based conglomerate. We have a diversified business portfolio. Our flagship is the automobile business. Even in this business we have spread across the region. We are in the UAE, India, Iraq and KSA. We represent multiple brands and are into property, real estate, manufacturing, job contracting and IT consulting. IT in the group is a centralised function. Every single requirement of the business goes through the group’s IT department. This is the same even for international businesses, where we have focal points in various locations. All hardware and software requirements are centralised,” says Sebastian Samuel, group IT manager for AWR.
