IT Operations and Infrastructure Managers Add Business Value to Existing Technology Assets Via Energy Management and Procurement of Hardware, Software and Services
SUNNYVALE, Calif., May 26, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- LeoNovus® Inc. ("LeoNovus") (TSXV: LTV) (OTCMKTS: LVNSF), a leading Internet developer with its geo-distributed Cloud Services, announced today its inclusion in the Gartner's April 22, 2015 global report, "Cool Vendors in Green IT, 2015," as one of five companies selected worldwide. Gartner, Inc. is the world's leading information technology research and advisory company headquartered in Stamford, Connecticut, USA, with 6,600 associates, including more than 1,500 research analysts and consultants, with clients in 85 countries.
LeoNovus is at the forefront of creating the infrastructure needed for next-generation distributed data centers that will enable highly efficient high-speed cloud and enterprise computing. With the LeoNovus breakthrough and proprietary cloud and infrastructure technology, a virtualized network – or cloud – can be created as a geo-distributed virtual data center by tapping securely into high performance compute and storage end points comprised of potentially unlimited number of remotely located, physical data sites including idle resources in PCs, TV set-top boxes and other Internet-connected devices. This approach drives efficiencies in reducing energy costs by connecting and utilizing idle IT resources, instead of building capital intensive data center buildings that require an immense amount of powering and cooling to manage computing resources in a single location. Additionally, a geo-distributed network is an edge network, which also reduces latency. This is a major trend in the sharing economy (see "Maverick* Research: Peer-to-Peer Sharing of Excess IT Resources Puts Money in the Bank"), and helps to reduce the environmental footprint.
"We are extremely pleased to receive this recognition from Gartner," said Gordon Campbell, CEO of LeoNovus. "Many companies that develop software applications appreciate the LeoNovus on-demand offering. Having the ability to tap into resources on an as-needed basis reduces capital costs and allows for greater control and collaboration of designs, products, and interaction with customers. The LeoNovus software platform provides a highly efficient and secure cloud model that delivers flexible data transmission and storage capacity to meet the needs of application and product companies without huge investment."
