LeoNovus Announces Active Distributed Cloud Data-Centre Units in First Hotel

Units Are Authenticated onto the LeoNovus Network, Adding Geo-Dispersed Capacity

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Jan. 16, 2014 /CNW/ - LeoNovus® Inc. ("LeoNovus") (TSXV: LTV), a leading Internet and Cloud provider with its SMART Media Platform and geo-dispersed distributed cloud network announced today that all available rooms with distributed gateway units are activated and installed in the first hotel property, with the exception of two floors that are expected to be completed with units in the next thirty days. This adds over 130 distributed data-centre units onto the LeoNovus cloud network, increasing storage capacity and immediate transfer-of-data, as well as adding an additional geo-dispersed location, which increases reliability and disaster recovery for cloud customers. Adding the balance will deliver a total of 200 rooms for this hotel.

For LeoNovus and its hotel partner 360VOX, creating on-demand cloud compute and storage in high-density, urban areas where most hotels are located provides efficient and high-speed resources near the data and its users, with redundancy in other geographies for high reliability and immediate data recovery. In comparison, cloud computing based on wide-area networks utilizes a sole data-center location in another state or country, which can be problematic for consistent speed and reliable bandwidth.

As a LeoNovus hospitality product, these data-centre units deliver a full suite of in-room infotainment on the front end, including just-in-time services and updates such as in-room dining, promotional advertising and real-time guest-services information without printing or updating large binders. The newly designed easy-to-use interface with a full browser also allows for access to email and Facebook, or sourcing local hometown news and entertainment.

Additionally, the product utilizes LeoNovus' proprietary Dark Core processing technologies to optimize its cloud network for the purpose of adding additional revenue streams. Having enough compute performance available for the front-end services, including distributed data centre revenue streams, turns what is currently a cost centre into a profit centre for the hotel.

LeoNovus is currently operating a geo-dispersed distributed data centre with locations in multiple cities in Canada and the U.S. Adding these hotels onto its network brings these distributed cloud services into large urban areas, which benefits the service by being close to where the data is located, offering a significant advantage for companies that require real-time analytics with faster delivery to mobile devices. This capability, as well as the ability to have built in data redundancy across geo-dispersed end points, delivers premium cloud services that are highly efficient and cost effective.

Additionally, now that LeoNovus is expanding its geo-dispersed capacity, the Company has expanded its sales and support team by adding a number of experienced individuals to support multiple enterprise customers.
