As part of the deal, STME is providing the ECC Solutions with an EMC Symmetrix-based solution that will be offered to companies interested in outsourcing their data protection and management needs to ECC Solutions. Under the agreement, both companies will be responsible for promoting the new service and attracting customers. Clients of ECC Solutions and STME's storage offering will pay according to the number of terabytes used, taking advantage of the new storage-on-demand infrastructure.

"Enterprises in Egypt are increasingly aware that their data, especially customer-related and financial information, is of critical importance. Competitive industries such as banking and telecoms are leading the market in terms of storage awareness and demand. The ECC Solutions and STME partnership is addressing the specific demand for a reliable, secure storage environment without the hassle or expense of implementing and managing this technology in-house," said Jon Bamford, Chief Executive Officer, ECC Solutions.

"By entering this partnership with STME for enterprise storage, we are complementing our existing offerings to create an outsourcing alternative in the Egyptian market. Being responsible for hosting and maintaining our clients' e-commerce platforms and e-business applications means we have to guarantee unfettered access to information, and that's what we're delivering through our new joint storage offering."
