Aims to meet fluctuating demand and support business growth in the burgeoning smart cities market in the Middle East

DUBAI: Eutech Cybernetic has chosen Orange Business Services Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) Flexible Computing Express to host and manage iVivaCloud, its smart city service platform.

It says that at a time when urban landscapes are changing rapidly, cities are confronting new challenges such as optimizing power supplies and transport, improving the quality of life of their citizens and making themselves more attractive for businesses and tourists alike. Digital technology plays a central role in this transformation. As per the company, iVivaCloud is an Internet of Everything (IoE) platform, which provides a suite of applications for smart cities, smart buildings and offices. “It allows the property operator to manage a single building, a set of buildings or an entire city across multiple locations from a single user-centric platform, via any device and from anywhere. iVivaCloud delivers smart ways of managing traffic, irrigation, sewage, utilities and car parks for the shopping malls, new districts and industrial cities that are being developed in the Middle East.” it stated.

Through Flexible Computing Express, Eutech is said to be able to dynamically manage the IT infrastructure required by its platform through a secured web portal, and allowing it to meet fluctuating demand and support business growth in the burgeoning smart cities market in the Middle East.

Eutech adds it also benefits from the ‘cloud coach service’ as part of Flexible Computing Expres wherein cloud experts from Orange Business Service support Eutech in the design and management of its cloud infrastructure, which frees it up to focus on the development of its own platform and applications.

Eutech will have its own private virtual data center within Orange Business Services Tier III+ data centers.  Continuity of service is key when managing a city facility. Eutech needs to guarantee its customers 24/7 access to real-time operational intelligence and analysis. Giorgio Heiman, vice president, emerging markets and indirect channels, Orange Business Services, added, “Through our own smart cities program, we understand the importance of cloud computing as a key enabler of the digital transformation of cities. It allows cities to develop smart and connected services for their citizens without investing in IT infrastructures that they could not afford and don’t have the skills to develop.”

Dr. Hari Gunasingham, CEO of Eutech Cybernetic, said, “iVivaCloud on Orange Business Services secure cloud infrastructure will be a key asset for us when city operator’s requirements in terms of security are on the increase.”
