April 23rd, 2012 | Technology Times | No Comments
STAFF REPORT IBD: A huge number of people are already involved in hosting business from Pakistan by leasing servers from other hosting providers which are located outside Pakistan and thereby reselling them but this is the first time that any hosting provider is VPS which are hosted in Pakistan.
CIS is offering both Windows and Linux based VPS (Virtual Private Server) ranging from 1GB to 8 GB memory. But the lame part here is the bandwidth provided with the packages, which ranges only from 1Mbps to 4Mbps which is literally nothing considering a “running” website/service.
It has also installed a new Juniper SRX® series firewall in its data centre to provide network level protection and security. The firewall provides a complete set of Unified Threat Management (UTM) security features including IDPS (intrusion detection and prevention system), IPSec VPN, Kaspersky® anti-virus, anti-spyware, anti-phishing, Symantec® anti-spam, and Websense® web-filtering.
“Keeping its tradition of being the pioneer, CIS launched its secure VPS service for its customers with local hosting. Now, customers can rent virtual servers from us on a monthly basis instead of having to invest in a full-fledged server,” said CEO CIS, Asim Shahryar Husain.
