ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates, Nov. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Huawei and the Abu Dhabi Marine Operating Company (ADMA-OPCO), a major producer of oil and gas from the offshore areas of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, today jointly announced that ADMA-OPCO's Cloud Ready Data Center is now fully operational at the Huawei Global Energy Summit 2016 in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates (UAE). The Cloud Ready Data Center is expected to help ADMA-OPCO address the needs of long-distance transmission and processing of a massive volume of data during offshore oil exploration and production. The Cloud Ready Data Center will also enhance the security of critical business data and applications for ADMA-OPCO. As one of the largest offshore oil and gas companies in the Gulf region, ADMA-OPCO is responsible for the production and exploration of a number of offshore oilfields in Abu Dhabi, producing several hundred thousands of barrels of oil per day. With the expansion of their businesses, ADMA-OPCO plans to upgrade its three data centers into a future-oriented cloud data center by integrating existing IT systems, so as to improve IT resource utilization and service response capability. This would allow ADMA-OPCO to cope with the rapid growth of data volumes and reduce the operating costs of data centers. Huawei has facilitated ADMA-OPCO to construct a cloud data center based on the Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) standards, which integrates the core architectures of data center management to implement a centralized management of both cloud and non-cloud data centers. The Cloud Ready Data Center features centralized IT resources, as well as collaborative management of blade servers, and storage and network equipment, realizing automatic provisioning of computing resources and scalable cloud data services required to support future-proof smooth capacity expansion. As a security mechanism, geographic disaster redundancy between two sites 200 km apart is implemented to ensure zero loss of key data generated by Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Oracle, and email systems.
