Kanoo enlists F5 Networks to revamp IT infrastructure

MANAMA, February 4, 2015

Bahrain-based Kanoo Group of companies is set to revamp its IT infrastructure to drive a new wave of growth and improve customer service across the region.

The group has enlisted global application delivery networking leader F5 Networks, to help deliver sustainable and state-of-the-art data centre consolidation, high availability and improved security for all business applications and services.

F5 Networks will also bolster Kanoo’s scope for data centre redundancy.

Fawzi Ahmed Kanoo, deputy chairman - Bahrain, said: “Kanoo Group is always looking for the future, and we intend to grow our business interests in a sustainable and hi-tech manner whenever we can.

“To realise this vision as fast as possible, we need to always be learning to become more efficient when it comes to managing our data centres—particularly the way we optimise and secure the applications that are critical to provide the best-in-class customer service.

“F5 Networks is at the forefront of provisioning and orchestrating applications services, and their solutions will be integral to driving our continued growth and innovation.”

The F5 Networks solutions at Kanoo’s  UAE, Saudi Arabia and Bahrain data centres include F5 BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager (LTM) to balance traffic across virtualised servers; F5 BIG-IP Advanced Firewall Manager (AFM) to filter incoming customer communications; and F5 BIG-IP Access Policy Manager (APM) to manage user authentication.

The wide-ranging project is set to improve business performance across all Kanoo divisions, including the largest travel and leisure company in the Middle East, as well as its trading, shipping, travel, machinery, oil and gas, logistics, specialty chemicals, and retail divisions.

Diego Arrabal, vice president, Southern Europe and Middle East, F5 Networks, said: “Kanoo Group has a long history of using technology to deliver excellent customer service, and we are proud to support their next stage of growth.

“This project is all about increasing infrastructure agility, reducing costs and achieving a new productive and competitive edge.” - TradeArabia News Service
