RapidCompute is a Pakistan-based business providing enterprise-level hosting. It’s ISO certified and has an excellent uptime SLA, but is only suitable for large businesses and enterprises.

Overview

RapidCompute-overview1Founded in 2012, RapidCompute is apparently the first enterprise-level public cloud provider in Pakistan. It owns three data centers, is ISO certified, and is a division of CyberNet, a leading Internet and Data Communication Network Service Provider in Pakistan. The website is available in English.

Features and Ease of Use

RapidCompute sells cloud solutions for enterprise customers. The plans come as standard with these following features:

  • 99.9% uptime guarantee
  • Backup and recovery plans
  • Multiple Pakistan-based data centers
  • 10 Gigabit SDN Switching
  • Pay as you go: only pay for what you consume

RapidCompute has three data centers in separate regions in Pakistan, with the latest PODs located in Lahore and Karachi. The processors used are robust Intel Xeon and 10Gbps networking for performance and reliability. Apparently, RapidCompute is the only ISO 27001:2013 certified Cloud Service Provider in Pakistan.

RapidCompute has one of the best uptime SLAs I have found. It’s detailed and its terms and conditions clearly state that if you have less than 99.9% uptime (more than 43 minutes of downtime per month), you will get compensation.

There is a range of enterprise-level services including managed email, disaster recovery plans, storage, applications, and cloud services. You can configure your own private cloud or create a desktop virtualization environment.

The private clouds are scalable and managed via self-service, however, unlike public clouds, the environment is dedicated to your company. Alternatively, you can choose a Hybrid cloud for companies who need proximity of data.

Pricing and Support

RapidCompute offers a pay as you go pricing model. You pay per hour for the resources you’ve used. You won’t be tied into a lengthy contract nor be upsold add-ons you don’t use or need.

When you purchase a plan with RapidCompute, you can configure your plan to meet the needs of your business, your wallet, and your technical requirements. For instance, specify the amount of CPU in core GHz, memory in GB, disk space in GB, and your data transfer requirement in GB, static IPs, VLAN’s, and so on.

RapidCompute-overview2

You can contact RapidCompute by phone, email, or online contact form 24/7. There’s a page of FAQs but this doesn’t include any help documents in the event you experience technical issues.

I contacted the team mid-afternoon on a weekday in Pakistan. Unfortunately, I did not receive a reply, even though I waited for several business days.
