Multinet Pakistan is a data and voice communications provider, offering state-of-the-art, managed-services solutions to carrier and enterprise customers. Multinet built its own multilayered fiber-optic network across 11,000 kilometers and currently provides leading-edge, data-center services and cloud services for midsize, business-to-business customers spanning more than 107 cities across Pakistan. The company continues to aggressively invest in expanding its reach within Pakistan and neighboring countries.
Multinet Pakistan chose Oracle VM Server for x86, Sun Server X2-4, Sun Server X3-2, Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c, and Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance because they are cost-effective, reliable, and scalable and enabled the company to reduce customers’ operating costs and support growth in the telecommunication services market.
“We selected Oracle over IBM and Cisco because Oracle solutions are more flexible and offer innovation for cloud offerings at a faster pace than its competitors. Oracle solutions are a perfect fit for our requirements as we expand in the midsize business sector because they enabled us to accelerate our time to market and reduce costs,” said Tariq Mustafa, Vice President – Technology, Multinet Pakistan.
Multinet Pakistan conducted trials before the Oracle virtualization platform went live, which took about three months. The company’s internally managed service team continues to manage the public cloud services.
“Thanks to Oracle’s rapid innovation cycle, we can deliver the most cost-effective cloud services to our customers and enable them to realize the benefits even faster,” Mustafa said.
Multinet Pakistan engaged Oracle partner Premier Systems (Pvt.) Ltd. to integrate the hardware and software solutions for its public-cloud virtualization platform.
“Premier Systems had expertise in and experience with Oracle hardware and software solutions and delivered the project on time and without surprises. This enabled us to pass on the savings to our customers through the cost-effective virtualization platform,” Mustafa said.
