VEON GROUP OPENS NEW 3MW TIER III DATA CENTRE

PRESS RELEASE: VEON Group has inaugurated the new Jazz Digital Park (JDP) and tier III data centre that was established with an investment of over US$ 8 million made by Jazz. Located in Islamabad, JDP will accelerate the country’s digital transformation ambition by significantly improving the existing level of IT services being provided to various sectors.

With a current capacity of more than 300 racks, expandable up to 450 racks, and a 3-megawatt power infrastructure, JDP is Pakistan’s largest Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) Tier-III certified data centre in terms of white space and power capacity. Jazz will use this digital park to offer secure IT infrastructure and hardware hosting facilities to businesses as well as local start-ups. JDP will also be hosting the new cloud platform soon to be launched by Jazz. The onshore cloud will be a significant step in ensuring that data created in Pakistan is hosted within the country.

Speaking at the inauguration, Kaan Terzioğlu said, “Through our leadership position in Pakistan and our global expertise, we are focused on helping create a flourishing digital ecosystem in Pakistan. Jazz Digital Park will serve as a key enabler of our digital operator strategy and is in line with our mission to simplify digital infrastructure challenges for local and regional enterprises.”

According to Aamir Ibrahim, CEO, Jazz, “Since the pandemic and the subsequent acceleration to digital platforms, businesses across various sectors are re-assessing their cloud adoption strategies and cloud readiness. The Jazz Digital Park represents a historic milestone for the country’s ICT industry as it is expected to simplify digital infrastructure challenges local businesses face. This facility is at the heart of our business strategy and validates our commitment to our customers as they continue their digital transformation journey.”

Jazz also plans to facilitate the Pakistani start-up ecosystem by offering cloud computing credits under its premium start-up accelerator programme at the National Incubation Centre. The cloud infrastructure will  help reduce the entry barrier for upcoming Pakistani start-ups, and is also expected to also enable the existing start-ups to accelerate their growth.

Jazz Digital Park provides one of the largest IT capacities, enabling businesses, including service providers to co-locate their critical IT infrastructure. It is equipped with four-directional fibre connectivity, 100 per cent. redundancy for all power and cooling systems and a Performance Optimised Data Centre solution to reduce its carbon footprint. These state-of-the-art features fulfil all operational requirements for a business to run, including 24/7 customer service, security, and system backups.
