How is cloud computing enabling businesses to achieve success? Cloud services present new opportunities for innovation, scalability and cost savings globally. Bahrain is committed to promoting and adopting a forward-thinking approach to data and cloud computing services with our Cloud-First Policy across both the public and private sectors.
Four fundamental pillars
Our Cloud-First Policy is based on four fundamental pillars of cloud computing: Adoption of public clouds; a preference for cloud IAAS & SAAS across government IT; training options for Bahrainis seeking to acquire cloud skills; and grant credit support for businesses transitioning into the cloud.
With our Cloud-First Policy and business-friendly environment, Bahrain is the perfect testbed for cloud infrastructure companies to launch innovative products across the region. By 2021, the MENA region is expected to have the highest cloud traffic growth rate at 35% CAGR (Cisco).
