RackHigh, a leading IaaS provider of on-demand, dedicated and enterprise hosting services in Saudi Arabia, announces their new high performance cloud service – Saudi Cloud.

High Performance

Designed with enterprise customers in mind, Saudi Cloud was built to provide high availability, performance and scalability. Using technologically advanced network equipment and hardware, including Intel SSD drives for speed, Juniper rack-level switches, Cisco core routers, Supermicro chassis with redundant power and dual Intel Xeon E5 series hypervisors Saudi Cloud™ is a ready for the most demanding business applications.

RackHigh Saudi Arabia Data Center

Saudi Cloud is located in a Tier 3+ state-of-the-art datacenter where it uses Tier 1 fiber carriers for optimal data transmission. Located in the downtown Riyadh, the data center is a stone fortress with government-grade security features and maximum failover.

“Our core principles when designing Saudi Cloud were high availability, performance and scalability. These principles extend not only to our network, but also to our hardware,” said Shafiq Ur Rehman, CEO at RackHigh. “We are utilizing stacking features from Cisco and Juniper to provide the high level of redundancy that Saudi Cloud demanded. Every switch has at least 10Gbps of capacity to our core routers which is easily upgradeable to 20Gbps. 100Gbps is possible in the future. We use only Intel Xeon processors and Intel SSDs in our hypervisors which gives us fast and reliable performance.”

RackHigh’ setup is also a step above competing products. Using KVM virtualization and distributed SSD storage the cloud instances deploy in under five minutes.

Saudi Cloud Support

RackHigh is passionate about customer support. To this end, they take customer service very seriously and strive for 100% customer satisfaction, no matter what it takes.

“Our RH Tel support team has trained rigorously with Saudi Cloud and is looking forward to assisting clients,” Wasil Khaldoon Asfour, Chief Customer Officer, commented. “With response times less than 10 minutes, our clients have come to expect superior customer service, and the support for our cloud hosting will be just as quick.”

Aggressively Priced

Saudi Cloud is priced more economically than any other major cloud hosting service providers, such as Rackspace or Amazon AWS EC2. In some cases, they offer a more attractive price for storage when compared with competitors. Additionally, unlike other providers, they offer gigabit port speeds with their standard cloud package.

“We’ve priced Saudi Cloud very reasonably,” said Mazhar ‘Udail Basara, Executive Vice President, Sales & Enterprise Solutions. “Like our dedicated servers, you’ll not find a better value in the industry. This is a high-end, rock-solid service and my team is eager to help clients onto this platform.”


In summation, RackHigh has taken the best of cloud computing and assembled a scalable, high performance offering designed to meet the challenging demands of customers for many years to come.
