Before we take a ride to the future of Cloud Hosting, let us recapitulate the journey of the internet in Saudi Arabia with some speedy stats.
Have a look at the table below to see how the internet has grown in popularity among Saudi’s masses.
Take a look at what 2019 has to say…
|Label||Figure||What numbers say|
|Population||33.85 million||Only half a million added over last year. The trend has not had much noticeable change|
|Active Internet users||30.26 million||As many as 17 in every 20 people in Saudi has access to the internet, clocking a 89.39 % stats of active users|
|Social Media users||23 million||Almost 67.95 % Saudis use social media platforms. At present there are more social media users than there were internet users in 2011.|
|Mobile users||16 million||16 million rely on smartphone-powered internet.|
An idea of how social platforms stack up against common internet usage in the kingdom.
|24.71 million users||YouTube is the most-celebrated platform, with its reach being 24.71 million in the kingdom. Apparently, 7 out of every 10 citizens is a fan of video-sharing.|
|20.99 million||Next to YouTube stands Facebook with 20.99 million accounts, summing up to an enormous 62 % of the entire Saudi population.|
|5.08 million||Twitter is yet to garner attention in Saudi. At present, it reaches 15 % Saudi population (based on the number of users)|
|24.37 million||The unrivalled king when it comes to online-messaging. Out of every 10 people, only 3 have remained untouched with WhatsApp, but are aware of it in some way or the other.|
|14 million||Just 10 million users short of WhatsApp, Snapchat is the second most preferred messenger in the middle east.|
As backed by the stats we just read, the internet has a massive potential to revolutionize Saudi’s reliance on digital platforms. In 2014, a total of SAR 1.7 billion was spent on datacenters and managed cloud services combined. The dawn of Cloud Services scaled investments by up to 373 % (between 2011 and 2014) for cloud services alone. The government, too, realized the numerous capabilities Cloud Hosting is capable of delivering.
While Cloud Servers are present in bulk in European and American countries, the kingdom is yet to implement it on full scale. A cloud server is built on a virtualized platform, wherein the data is outsourced to a provider’s server and retrieved as and when required.

As with any other technology, people are a bit sceptical while adopting tech at an early stage. However, as Cloud starts to age, more and more trust is being placed on virtualized servers. The following factors have contributed to the dim adoption of cloud services.
With Vision 2030, the kingdom is planning to increase digital dependency and to extirpate reliance on petroleum as the only pillar of economy. Achieving the intended level of digitalization in such a short time leaves little scope for testing and developing servers in-house. Thus, the government is increasingly focusing on full-scale implementation of Cloud Hosting in Saudi Arabia.
The government collaborated with SAP some time back. The merger bore fruits and a Cloud-based data center is now live in Riyadh. This data center will cater to both the enterprise customers as well as the government. SAP was selected by the government to unlock more IT capabilities and to realize Vision 2030 at a faster pace.
Some technical pre-requisites prior to buying cloud hosting in Saudi Arabia.
Cloud data centers are classified into 4 tiers number from I to IV, IV being the epitome of sophistication, while tier I lies at the bottom of the spectrum.
It is a myth that cloud servers make you lose all control. You will always have the key to use the server the way you want. Meanwhile, we will take care of things (hardware and installation) that could have bothered you otherwise.
On our way to being seen as a prominent provider of cloud hosting in Saudi Arabia, we boast of the following compliances:
Not only is there on-demand availability of resources, there is on-demand scaling of computing powers. With cloud hosting, you would never worry about pre-planning your server upgrades and respond quickly to changing business factors.
Security is implemented in various layers with each layer specializing in safeguarding a particular threat-type.
Cloud hosting with redundant components offers a more reliable environment. While tier-4 data centers are considered as virtually fault-proof, a tier-3 data center can offer almost at-par services as tier 4 data center, and with better cost-effectiveness. In the long run, the difference will also be very less noticeable.
The on-demand availability of computing resources such as disk space and processing capability without any active user management from the client’s side.
Clouds are very easy to setup, require zero management, and are a low-cost but stringent solution.
The hardware is taken care of by the provider, and the server can be accessed round-the-clock from anywhere in the world.
Cloud servers are as secure as any other server. With an entire arsenal of firewall, intrusion detection, and threat elimination systems, you wouldn’t have to worry for your data security again. The data is also backed up by multiple servers running at different locations. So you never run the risk of losing business-crucial data at any point.
It is, given the fact that the third-party has absolutely no interest in your data, and instead safeguards it to your interest. Consider it similar to safekeeping valuables in a bank-vault.
Based on the services, clouds can assume the following types:
IaaS – that uses Infrastructure as a Service. You can choose to have IaaS in case you need an entire data center at your disposal, but building and maintaining it is not an option.
PaaS – Platform as a Service can be used when you need cloud computing but without the underpinning management. You can leverage PaaS to develop your own cloud-based software, or to develop an application to deploy with clouds.
SaaS – Software as a Service is in trend and is more widely adored than its cousins – IaaS & PaaS. You can utilize SaaS to run third-party web-based HR management, accounting, and resource planning software.
Yes, absolutely. The Saudi government is itself promoting cloud computing for IT and has taken big initiatives such as Cloud First Policy 2019 to facilitate eased adoption of clouds.
A cloud server is a pool of servers virtualized in an environment to act as a single server regardless of its underlying physical addresses.
Yes, you can easily scale cloud servers to fit your requirements. You can tailor your own set of RAM, disk space, and other resources for your organization.
The cost depends upon the services and configuration you need. There’s also freedom to choose from a range of billing cycles. While a long cycle will be more cost-effective, the short ones will cater better for fast changing businesses.
Yes. You can configure cloud servers over your own private infrastructure (called Private cloud servers). While you can still reap the benefits of cloud hosting, high upfront investment and server management are likely to bother you.
We will initiate server migration and the data will be moved to our cloud server. Once we are sure that the data moved is healthy and has not fragmented, we will need you to map your IP to the new server and concurrently detach with the previous server.
