Islamabad, 09 February 2022: Aimed at facilitating enterprises to leverage technology and unleashing their full business potential, Jazz has launched 'Garaj', a state-of-the-art cloud platform. The onshore cloud is a significant step forward in ensuring that data created in Pakistan is hosted within the country, as well as being a key enabler of Jazz’s digital operator strategy.

With an investment of US$ 6 million planned over the next few years, Garaj is expected to enable businesses, public entities, academic institutions as well as local startups to further optimize their operational efficiency, capacity and accelerate their growth ambitions. The cloud services will be delivered from Jazz’s data center in Lahore and Jazz Digital Park, Pakistan’s largest TIA Rated-3 certified data center that was recently established with an investment of US$ 8 million.

“Business innovation, today, requires powerful technology solutions,” said Syed Ali Naseer, Chief Business Officer, Jazz. “Garaj will enable a secure and affordable cloud experience as more businesses and government seek digitalization to capture efficiencies and reinvent their customer experience. Cloud solutions will allow for much needed cost and operational efficiencies, while delivering security and improving the ease of doing work.”

Traditional IT infrastructures require in-house server hardware, software licenses, integration capabilities, and on the ground employee support. Through Garaj, companies can forego these additional expenses, and utilize the pay-as-you-grow pricing model, to customize and scale plans according to their growing needs.
