Finesse implements IBM Cloud disaster recovery for Al Masah Capital Management
Finesse announced the commencement of Infrastructure as a Service for Al Masah Capital Management. Al Masah Capital Management is a Dubai based alternative investment management firm and has contracted Finesse to offer them with IBM Cloud solutions. Finesse will assist them with their business and IT platform transformation programme using IBM Cloud. Finesse has been signed up for their capabilities in offering infra service and cloud provisioning capabilities.
Al Masah Capital Management had their legacy datacentre and respective disaster recovery running with peak utilisation for more than five years. Finesse, with offerings on IBM Cloud, transformed them to new datacentres with high availability and disaster recovery sites using the latest scalable technologies. This covers a revamp of all the corporate datacentre and disaster recovery sites.
Ashith Piriyattiah, Group Head for Information Technology at Al Masah Capital Management said, “The transformation of our datacentre and disaster recovery sites onto cloud has been achieved with extreme cost efficiency and effective use of resource skill set with multiple layers of data security. We at Al Masah Capital Management are very thrilled at our partnership with Finesse and their engagement from the beginning of discussions to completion of the project. The Finesse team has been very responsive at identifying the areas of challenges and suggesting the appropriate solution, working efficiently within the parameters set by us.”
Anand Lakhwani, Practice Head Infra Services at Finesse said, “Companies running without disaster recovery face a risky situation in a case of datacentre failure. With the current growth within Al Masah Capital Management, it was a better approach to go with a highly scalable solution on cloud rather than refreshing the existing hardware and blocking the capex. Finesse has enabled the end to end journey to ensure Al Masah Capital Management migration onto IBM Cloud.”
Al Masah Capital Management offers private equity, asset management, corporate and real estate advisory as well as public market research services. It provides fund raising and advisory services primarily in alternative investments in the MENA region to individuals and entities wishing to participate in such markets.
