The Post Office in Qatar began operating modestly in 1950 with just 6 staff. Nevertheless the story begins in earnest in May 1963 when the State of Qatar took full responsibility for its own Postal Services. From that date, what is now the General Postal Corporation (GPC) sought to improve their services to the public against a rapidly increasing population and a vast and almost unprecedented rate of development. This led, ultimately and some 25 years later to a modern, purpose-built new sorting center a;nd headquarters equipped with the latest technologically advanced equipment and designed to cater for the country’s requirements well into the next century. As well as the prestigious main building on the Doha skyline next to the Corniche, there are presently 40 Postal Branches(18 with PO Box facilities) in service in the country including the Airport Post Office which operates 24 hours daily. Additionally, a number of Postal Agencies provide limited services as well thereby ensuring that Postal Services cover the entire country.
Qpost required a 500sq ft Data Center for the postal services department. This data center will replace the very out dated computing environment that they current have in place. In the beginning it will serve as the disaster recovery site (DRDC) during the 25th Universal Postal Conference (UPC) to be held at the convention center in Doha, Qatar as Q-post was selected to hold this prestigious event. After the conference has concluded the new data center built by Sterling and Wilson will become the main computing facility for the Qatar postal service.
