Cloud computing is the next big thing in the Information Technology sector. Considered as the digitization tool par excellence, the cloud has attracted a lot of interest across the globe. As business development progresses, the infrastructure must be able to cope with new modern initiatives and steady growth. The possibility of improving your business is something that is appealing to every decision maker across the globe. With cloud computing the possibility of having a modern and state-of-the-art IT infrastructure, without the need for substantial capital investments and personnel increases, becomes real.
It is therefore not surprising that the cloud market revenue is expected to double in the next three years reaching up to USD 162 billion. However, surprising is the fact that more than 65% of the cloud market is occupied by only a few leading providers, mainly American such as Amazon AWS, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud. The remaining 35% market share is in the hands of thousands of cloud providers scattered around the world.
Swiss cloud provider n’cloud.swiss is aiming to provide IT resources and on-demand applications over the Internet at usage-based prices in Pakistan
Whether you run apps that share photos with millions of mobile users or support critical business operations in your organization, the cloud provides quick access to flexible and cost-effective IT resources.
When it comes to cloud computing, you do not have to invest in hardware in advance or spend a lot of time managing it. Instead, you can provide the exact type and size of computing resources you need to implement your latest breakthrough idea or operate your IT department. Cloud computing provides an easy way to access servers, storage, databases and a full range of application services over the Internet.
Swiss-made alternative to Amazon AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform & Co., n’cloud.swiss operates and manages the network-attached hardware needed for these application services, providing and using the resources you need through a web application.
The Advantages of n’cloud.swiss
The adoption of solutions and services in the cloud present a number of advantages and benefits, among others:
- No more costs for operating and maintaining data centers: Focus on projects that differentiate your company in the market, not the infrastructure. Cloud computing allows to focus on customers rather than setting up, populating, and operating server cabinets.
- Speed and agility: The time required to deploy these resources will be reduced to minutes. This leads to a remarkable increase in the agility of an enterprise. In fact, costs and the expenditure for experiments and development decrease substantially.
- Go for variable costs rather than investment costs: Instead of investing heavily in data centers and servers, cloud computing makes it possible to work by paying only for the computing resources that are actually used.
- Flexible capacity: No more uncertainty in determining the infrastructure capacity requirements. Customers can access as much or as little capacity as needed and adjust their demand after a short notice as desired.
On the software side, a number of services are provided by n’cloud.swiss. These are, amongst others, Docker and Kubernetes-as-a-Service, as well as API Monitoring, Analytics Hadoop, VPN and Cloud Watch.

The award winning service enables customers to use a complete CI/CD environment while reducing time and costs in the development process. The cost-efficient solution is based on automated n’cloud.swiss tools and can be deployed in any development or productive environment without external dependencies. In short, with CDaaS, the cloud is being revolutionized and the possibilities become endless.
Pakistan is a growing economy with many opportunities. In particular, with regards to the Pakistani market, companies are known for their reluctance in investing huge capital to buy their own IT infrastructure independently although decision makers are aware of the importance of cutting-edge technologies businesses to compete within a competitive global market. Highly advanced technological and sophisticated environment without any major cost is exactly what the cloud presents as one of its advantages.
While the likes of Amazon AWS and Microsoft Azure have already launched their cloud services in Pakistan, n’cloud.swiss has been pushing ahead its roll-out in Pakistan for the last two years.
The owner-managed IT company was founded in 2001. Since then, it has been one of the very few companies in the cloud sector worldwide that can tailor all cloud models and services from Public, On-Prem or Hybrid clouds as well as offering “managed”, “semi-managed” or “unmanaged” support services. The company’s targets in the short-term comprise local support for Pakistani customers and plans to open datacenters.
In addition, the company aims to consider the application of local payment methods to enhance pricing transparency for customers. The certification of both their quality management and their information security management system (IMS) to the two standards ISO 9001: 2015 and ISO 27001: 2013 equip n’cloud.swiss with high international quality and security standards.
“The cloud services market in Pakistan is on the rise. As a result, it presents a huge potential for us as a serious Swiss cloud provider to offer customers a non-American solution. Safety, reliability and outstanding quality without the need for heavy capital investments in IT infrastructure is indeed something decision makers in Pakistan look for and something we can deliver. Our goals are to get more and more customers using n’cloud.swiss. To achieve these goals, we are open for partnerships and look for resellers to help us increase sales and turnover to invest further in Pakistan”, explains Danish Ali Chaudhary, Business Development Manager at n’cloud.swiss AG.
