LeoNovus Announces the Release of Sovereignty Distributed Cloud

Solves Concerns of Large Corporations over Varying Regulations by Governing Jurisdictions and Corporate Bylaws

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Feb. 13, 2014 /CNW/ - LeoNovus® Inc. ("LeoNovus") (TSXV: LTV), a leading Internet developer with its SMART Media Platform and geo-dispersed distributed Cloud announced today the release of its sovereignty distributed cloud capability. Large multi-million-dollar companies are challenged with maintaining control over the location of their data, where documents physically reside, and proprietary access when using cloud services. Privacy and data residency requirements vary by country and even within national borders. Users of cloud services need to consider the rules of privacy and security that cover each of the jurisdictions in which they operate, including the rules that govern the treatment of data at the locations where data centres provision their services.

Corporate cloud initiatives are proliferating, driven by the need for organizations to be competitive, innovative, and cost-effective. However, while the cloud delivers compelling benefits in these areas, it also raises significant issues around data residency, privacy, security, and compliance – especially when data crosses international boundaries.

The LeoNovus distributed cloud offers the ability for geo-dispersed compute and storage within a domain. In practice, that means that a large government organization or financial company located in Canada can choose to use the LeoNovus distributed cloud across multiple end-points within a geographical boundary or even province, while maintaining total control over data residency as well as privacy based on governing jurisdictions.

"Many large enterprises have voiced their concern in working with larger data-centre providers that do not disclose where data is physically stored," said Dan Willis, Chief Architect for LeoNovus. "In addition, these providers mandate through service level agreements (SLAs) that they keep keys to the data. We believe that data should be considered a corporation's intellectual property and should not be exposed. The LeoNovus sovereignty distributed cloud is a product designed to address these issues and concerns."

The Company provides the optimal solution by providing highly reliable cloud services — and it offers its customers full control over their Intellectual Property unlike many traditional data-centre providers.
