Karachi to have its first Tier 4 Data Center

For the interest of the local IT community, here is some good news to share: Karachi to have its first Tier 4 Data Center.

Public Data Centers (as opposed to 'Private Data Centers' built and operated by private enterprises) are rated according to their infrastructure facilities and allowable downtimes per year. They can range from Tier 1 to Tier 4 with Tier 1 being the most simple and inexpensive and Tier 4 beig the most complex to maintain and most expensive to build.

Such a resilent facility should have no shortage of potential customers specially when decent network connections to the outside world are available to the data center. I wish the US based group that is financing the venture and its Pakistani owners all the success as this could be the start point of the much awaited local hosting facilities.
