An important industry forum, the Canada Cloud Network, is launching an exciting R&D program: Always On Cloud Computing. The initiative will enable Canada to become a world leader in the global Cloud computing sector. Recent downtime incidents from giant Cloud providers and lack of effective SLAs, highlight that despite the advances in underlying technologies, operating critical IT infrastructure in a single data centre still presents a major risk of a catastrophic failure that can endanger customer relationships and ultimately lead to business failure.
An expert team of senior technology experts from leading Canadian companies: Think On, ZeroNines and Centrilogic will present the major focus areas of this R&D program on Wednesday, March 13, 2013, 3:00 PM at the Toronto Business Development Centre, 900 – 1 Yonge Street, Toronto, ON.
- Disaster Recovery For All – “How to Achieve Enterprise Class Service on an SMB Budget,” says ThinkOn CEO Craig McLellan. “We will discuss the state of disaster recovery in the Cloud and the key techniques to building an AlwaysOn application infrastructure.”
- High Availability Healthcare – “ZeroNines Always Available Architecture allows for application resiliency across Heterogeneous Clouds, Data Centers and MSPs,” says ZeroNines CEO Alan Gin. “We will discuss how ZenVault Medical was envisioned and launched at the 2009 Intel Developer Forum specifically on ZeroNines’ technology for the cloud.”
- Hybrid Hosting Architecture – Centrilogic CEO Robert Offley comments: “CentriLogic offers a multi-zone cross-border cloud hosting solution that is built upon our core infrastructure located within our interconnected data centers in Canada and the USA, meeting customers critical need that their data does not traverse geopolitical borders. We offer clients the ability to combine their cloud services with their existing hosting environments to ensure a smooth migration of their enterprise-class workloads to the cloud.”
