VMware, Inc.

Ankabut's platform provides collaboration opportunities between UAE education, government, and industry sectors. Aligned with Abu Dhabi Vision 2030 and UAE Vision 2021 government transformation goals, Ankabut provides cloud connectivity, IT infrastructure and managed services for 80 UAE member institutions to drive innovative educational services such as digital student records, project collaboration and virtual reality field trips.

Ankabut also becomes a member of the VMware Cloud Provider Program, becoming the first dedicated education service provider in the UAE. Using VMware software-defined data center and VMware NSX network virtualization solutions, Ankabut can provide more secure data center and public cloud services that can quickly, easily, and affordable scale up as their student population grows.

"We needed to build a digital foundation to support our vision of becoming the region's leading education service provider, while allowing academic institutions to reduce capital and operating costs. To help accelerate digital transformation within the education sector, this required advanced automation, a standard for sharing services and the adoption of a cloud computing approach with virtualization as its foundation. With VMware solutions, we are able to provide an innovative service to educational institutions that is flexible whilst reducing operational costs," said Fahem Nuaimi, CEO, Ankabut.

"Academic institutions are embracing cloud strategies to deliver services faster and more cost effectively.
