Etisalat ha stretto di recente una collaborazione strategica di respiro regionale con CDNetworks mediante la sua infrastruttura SmartHub per realizzare l'ampliamento delle opportunità relative al commercio elettronico e agli acquisiti online negli Emirati Arabi Uniti.
A seguito di tale collaborazione con Etisalat, gli Emirati Arabi Uniti sono divenuti anch'essi un punto di presenza (Point of Presence, PoP) di CDNetworks nel Medio Oriente, andando ad aggiungersi alla Turchia, all'Iraq, al Qatar e all'Arabia Saudita, e CDNetworks conta ora più di 140 PoP a livello mondiale.
“Il 70% della popolazione degli Emirati Arabi Uniti ha accesso a internet, pertanto i clienti di CDNetworks non mancheranno di trarre vantaggi enormi dalla collaborazione con Etisalat”, ha dichiarato Jeff Kim, Direttore operativo responsabile delle regioni Americhe/EMOA presso CDNetworks. “Questo punto di presenza, che andrà a espandere la nostra attuale copertura nel Medio Oriente, garantisce che i nostri clienti che vendono prodotti e servizi online nella regione potranno offrire la miglior esperienza dell'utente possibile”.
Gli Emirati Arabi Uniti ospitano un folto numero di acquirenti benestanti che si servono di internet per effettuare ricerche e acquistare beni. Secondo quanto emerso da un'indagine recente a cura di MasterCard, i consumatori negli Emirati Arabi Uniti acquistano online biglietti aerei, pernottamenti alberghieri, elettrodomestici e accessori di moda. Secondo le stime elaborate dal Fondo Monetario Internazionale, nel 2011 gli Emirati Arabi Uniti si sono piazzati al settimo posto a livello mondiale per quanto riguarda il PIL pro capite che, secondo la Banca Centrale, potrebbe registrare un tasso di crescita potenziale del 3,5% nel 2012, il che si traduce in un mercato significativo per i clienti di CDNetworks operanti nei settori dei viaggi e della vendita al dettaglio.
“Siamo estremamente lieti di aver stretto un rapporto di collaborazione con CDNetworks”, ha affermato Ali Amiri, vicepresidente esecutivo della divisione Servizi per vettori e grossisti presso Etisalat UAE. “L'abbinamento tra la nostra solida infrastruttura SmartHub e la soluzione Global Cloud Acceleration di CDNetworks determinerà senz'altro un miglioramento dell'esperienza degli utenti di internet negli Emirati Arabi Uniti grazie alla trasmissione di contenuti ricchi a livello locale”.
“Attraverso questa collaborazione e altre come questa, stiamo creando un accesso di classe mondiale alle ultimissime applicazioni ICT utilizzando la nostra infrastruttura SmartHub che continueremo a sviluppare onde mantenere la nostra posizione di leadership in questo ramo”, ha affermato Amiri.

You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”
