Mideast Power System (MPS), an ITG company, specialized in the provision of critical power and cooling system as well as Data Center solutions, was involved in building and installing an improved Data Center for FDC in their offices in Choueifat, Lebanon.

 

With the help of MPS’s team, the new main Data Center is now fully operational since April 2017. It is by far the most secure, robust, scalable, and powerful Data Center in the Lebanese Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) & Pharmaceutical distribution industry today.

 

Digital transformation stands for FDC’s strategy in their mission of providing the best products and services for their customers. A new state of the art Data Center was one step towards achieving this goal. “Partnering with MPS in revamping our Data Center was a great value for FDC, since we were working with experts having an extensive experience in this domain, from planning & design phase, to construction & commissioning, till the operation phase while providing deliverables on time and within budget”, said Mr. Bassam Baz, IT Manager at FDC.

 

The flawless installation handled by MPS, for the new Data Center at the offices of FDC was complex and challenging. The installation was being completed in a live environment with constraints. FDC was operating on a daily basis when the Data Center was being assembled. MPS’s team was coordinating with outmost professionalism to produce the end product with state-of-the-art equipment without interrupting the company’s daily business.

 

The installation of the new Data Center was completed in less than 3 months. This shows the efficient project management of MPS in handling projects. Mr. Baz also added “dealing with ITG Group created an efficient IT environment, providing top-notch solutions, and finally their consulting services showed high level of professionalism with depth & breadth of knowledge. Looking forward to a continued relationship and to achieving more success stories in the future with MPS, a company who truly lives up to the 'result matter' motto.”

 

From a technical perspective, the Data Center is considered a Tier 3 Converged Data Center. It supports provisioning on demand, virtualization, environmental management system, redundant subsystems (cooling, power, network links, storage), ISO compliant, flexibility to respond to fast changing operational situation while guaranteeing 99.741% of data availability.
