Cybernet Launches Pakistan's First Cloud Solution
Cybernet, an enterprise network and data service provider, has launched Pakistan’s first commercial cloud infrastructure, Pakistan’s very own, in a ceremony held in Islamabad yesterday.
Cybernet’s cloud solution, dubbed as RapidCompute, is an Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud platform that is said to be deployed and maintained by in-house expertise and support structure of Cybernet.
Shahid Ahmed Khan, CEO Cybernet, said that RapidCompute will enable businesses across Pakistan to avail important benefits of cloud services that were previously not available in the country. Mr. Khan claimed that locally deployed RapidCompute will reduce network latency by 90 percent for those accessing the cloud network with-in Pakistan.
Cybernet said that it took them an year or so to build the infrastructure from scratch to eventually launch the cloud solution that they are aiming to sell to small to large sized organizations in Pakistan and abroad.
Cybernet said that RapidCompute is built on Cybernet’s datacenter facility in Karachi, while they are planning to establish more datacenters in Islamabad, Lahore and another in Karachi too. Mr. Shahid revealed that Cybernet has plans to invest in cloud computing beyond Pakistan as well.
Company said that its aim is to provide the local businesses and organizations with an opportunity to experience high performing, flexible, robust and cost-effective computing infrastructure with zero capital to start with. While they will have to only pay for the resources they will use.

RapidCompute’s pricing seems to be fair. Given the network is deployed in Pakistan, this is probably the best they could offer. Understandably, network bandwidth is pricier than any foreign competition.
