Improved Network Performance

“With such a large number of locations in our business we need fast, effective and secure networks. We were struggling to connect to our regional data centres to our Cloud providers in Europe until Orixcom proposed their Managed CloudConnect solution. Having the flexibility to connect our regional data centres to any Cloud provider was game changing for us and we are excited to have Orixcom as a network partner.”
Majid Al Futtaim
Dubai, UAE


  • Majid Al Futtaim had migrated their applications to Azure and AWS data centres in Europe.
  • They needed a cost effective solution to connect their data centres in the UAE to Cloud providers in Europe
  • They also required apps in the Azure data centre to connect to applications in the AWS data centre. This particular connection isn’t possible with the incumbent suppliers. The only option available was a connection back to the data centre in the UAE and then another out again to the second data centre, also known as hairpinning.


Orixcom proposed CloudConnect using Managed SD-WAN

  • Using CloudConnect via SD-WAN allowed for a far greater measure of flexibility than the existing supplier could offer
  • Majid Al Futtaim were able to connect the two data centres in Europe without bringing network traffic back to Dubai and slowing the connections down
  • Private, dedicated connections to both Cloud providers enabling a low cost, low latency network

Outcomes and ROI

  • Multi-cloud connections are not available from existing suppliers
  • 90% saving on fixed MPLS networks
  • The private, dedicated connection that CloudConnect facilities allows organisations to connect securely with low latency to their applications in the cloud. This avoids the public internet and gives a fast, highly available connection
  • The private connection allows Majid Al Futtaim to run at full capacity 24/7, receiving the full bandwidth they pay for
