Finding a cloud service to meet enterprise client needs
Established in 1999, with a vision to bring high-speed Internet to Israel, MedOne focuses on next-generation data centre services, delivered from the most advanced and secure data centres in the Middle East. MedOne offers its enterprise clients a wide array of solutions, including colocation solutions for main computer rooms and production sites, backup and disaster recovery sites, and comprehensive business continuity solutions.
MedOne operates from three underground data centres spanning more than 17,000m2 in central and northern Israel. These data centres, which are the first of their kind in Israel, were created according to a highly stringent design process in compliance with international standards, with an emphasis on resiliency and in implementing the strictest security measures in Israel. The data centre facilities serve as the main Israeli connectivity hub linking all Israeli ISPs among themselves and to the rest of the world.
MedOne’s clients operate across all industry sectors, including financial services, government, high technology, and others. Strict local regulations prevented many of MedOne’s enterprise clients from using offshore cloud services, and local cloud vendors were not able to offer the security, service level agreements (SLAs), and performance they required.
To meet client demand, MedOne decided to become a premium public cloud provider and, rather than build its own services, MedOne opted to partner with an existing and successful cloud services provider. Moreover, a partner that would enable the company to rapidly bring to market a set of mature cloud services. In 2014, after defining the ideal requirements for its cloud services from a survey of its existing client base, MedOne engaged with all of the world’s leading cloud services providers to find the ideal cloud partner.
