The Pak Banker - - 6BUSINESS -

16th March, 2016- RapidCom­pute, Pak­istan's lead­ing cloud ser­vice provider has been grow­ing from strength to strength, since its in­cep­tion in 2012. It of­fers an In­fra­struc­ture-as-a-Ser­vice (IaaS) cloud plat­form that com­bines en­ter­prise class in­fra­struc­ture with the ex­per­tise and sup­port struc­ture that is the hall­mark of Caber­net's prod­uct port­fo­lio. Be­ing able to suc­cess­fully build two data cen­ters in Karachi, RapidCom­putes has now gained a foothold in La­hore. By its firm­ness in La­hore, they hope to em­power mul­ti­ple in­dus­try ver­ti­cals in the Pun­jab re­gion in­clud­ing lead­ing banks, man­u­fac­tur­ing con­cerns and ser­vice or­ga­ni­za­tions.

The CEO Cy­ber­net, Mr. Dan­ish Lakhani, opened the event by speak­ing about how far RapidCom­pute has come and the progress they have made in the past year. He fur­ther claimed that "With Cloud Com­put­ing in Pak­istan, I be­lieve it is now a mat­ter of 'not if but when'. We have seen no­table Pak­istani com­pa­nies grad­u­ally make the shift to the Cloud. Cus­tomers ex­pect 100 per­cent up­time and re­li­a­bil­ity, and that is some­thing RapidCom­pute has been able to of­fer con­sis­tently. Our dat­a­cen­ters are built with long-term vi­sion and fo­cus on qual­ity, re­li­a­bil­ity, ef­fi­ciency and cus­tomer sat­is­fac­tion".

The new RapidCom­pute Data cen­ter has been built us­ing tech­nol­ogy com­po­nents from Schinei­der Elec­tric and Mr. Mu­nib Khawaja, its Coun­try Vice Pres­i­dent, was also present at the event. He re­garded be­ing a part of build­ing RapidCom­pute Data cen­ter and the spoke about the suc­cess of this pro­ject.

Mr. Zee­shan Ali, Gen­eral Man­ager IT at Na­tional Foods, Mr. Sa­j­jad Ghani, Chair­man of PITB , and Mr. Zaeem Ar­shad, Divi­sion Head RapidCom­pute were part of the Cloud Con­ver­sa­tions panel. They dis­cussed the progress in cloud com­put­ing and how more or­ga­ni­za­tions are adapt­ing to the global trend of mov­ing their data onto the Cloud. They also took ques­tions from the au­di­ence mak­ing the event in­ter­ac­tive.

Mr. Zaeem Ar­shad also spoke about RapidCom­putes vi­sion for the fu­ture by ex­press­ing an even greater ex­pan­sion in

the busi­ness and in more com­pa­nies join-
