Saudi firm set for Avaya platform.

Zuhair Fayez Partnership (ZFP), one of Saudi Arabia's successful consultancy firms specialising in architecture, engineering and information systems, is set to deploy Avaya's Virtual Service Platform (VSP) 9000 to deliver high-performance and high-availability Ethernet switching as the company moves toward a next-generation virtualised data centre environment.

Aimed at simplifying ZFP's network infrastructure operations, the Avaya deployment, which will be managed by platinum-level partner BMC, is anticipated to deliver significant operational and maintenance savings as well as a measurable increase in ZFP's business performance.

Serving 3,000 users at five main branches and 20 remote sites, ZFP's Avaya infrastructure will enable the company to provide virtual services in a cloud-based environment and maximise the efficiency of its existing IT resources. The Avaya VSP 9000, a key element of Avaya's Virtual Enterprise Network Architecture (Vena) data networking strategy, will support ZFP users that require round-the-clock access to key applications. The Avaya solution, to be deployed by partner BMC, will reduce power consumption, alleviate data centre complexity and deliver ultra-reliable system uptime. It will also help address ZFP's future needs with support for the emerging 40 and 100 gigabit ethernet standards.

"The Avaya Virtual Services Platform 9000 will enable ZFP to achieve maximum business benefit from a virtualised computing environment. As our construction and IT consultancy expands, Avaya's Ethernet switching solution will provide a consistently high standard of system availability and scalability, delivering more efficient use of our data centre while working more cost-effectively," said Salem Banajah, director of MIS and BMS at ZFP

Fadi Hani, managing director, Avaya Saudi Arabia, remarked: "With the deployment of the Avaya VSP 9000, ZFP is one of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia's first adopters of a next-generation virtualised data centre. This forward-thinking approach will enable ZFP to scale and deploy new applications dynamically in a cloud-based computing environment as its business grows and its needs evolve. With support from Avaya partner BMC, ZFP is set to reap the benefits of a network that reduces operating costs and is less complex, better performing and future-proof."
