HPE helps Link Datacenter meet data sovereignty challenges

Link Datacenter (LDC), Egypt's largest managed-services provider, anticipates substantial growth as it embarks on its latest venture - meeting the growing demand for hybrid cloud environments. Many LDC customers are already leveraging the power of Microsoft Azure public cloud services but face data privacy and sovereignty constraints that require them to store certain types of data within country boundaries.
LDC worked with HPE to deploy the HPE ProLiant for Microsoft Azure Stack hybrid cloud solution in its data center, allowing the company's customers to run a range of Azure-consistent customer applications that require an on-premises environment.
When selecting a partner to implement the solution, LDC's CEO, Gamal Selim, considered other Microsoft Azure Stack vendors but says HPE was his first choice based on a 20-year relationship, as well as what he calls HPE's comprehensive engagement model. HPE has helped LDC rightsize its solution and develop a pricing structure to optimize revenue.
