Commvault to support research and training at Jeddah University
Two sides to share knowledge on cloud computing and data management and protection
Jeddah University and Commvault will cooperate to advance scientific research and training at the institution.
An MoU signed between the university and the backup and recovery firm stipulates that the two sides will partner in supporting scientific research, holding workshops on technology and cloud computing, providing training for students, carrying out examinations, and distributing certificates in these areas. It will also involve supporting research projects related to cybersecurity and artificial intelligence.
Wael Mustafa, area vice president for Commvault in the Middle East said, “This agreement will empower students in KSA in the fields of data protection and management by providing them with the necessary skills and expertise to enter the technical sector, work in it, and lead it in the future.”
Jeddah University will establish a technical training centre to provide training for the university’s students, supported by Commvault experts, in addition to running tests and sharing knowledge on cloud computing and data management and protection.
Commvault recently hosted its first ever Connections Live event in Riyadh. The event included customers and partners highlighting some of the key trends in data protection and digital transformation impacting industries in Saudi Arabia and the wider region.
Commvault has been working with the Saudi Telecom Company (STC), to deliver backup-as-a-service and utilising the STC cloud environment.
