LeoNovus Signs LOI with Ionics EMS Inc. to Roll Out Geo-Distributed Cloud Services in the Philippines

Feasibility Study Completed with Move Forward Outcome

SUNNYVALE, Calif., July 7, 2015 /CNW/ -- LeoNovus® Inc. ("LeoNovus") (TSXV: LTV), a leading Internet developer with its geo-distributed Cloud Services, announced today it has entered into a Letter of Intent (LOI) with Ionics EMS Inc. to roll out its geo-distributed cloud in the Philippines. Ionics is the Philippines leading electronics manufacturing-services provider listed on the Philippines Stock Exchange. With a successful 41-year track record in the industry, Ionics offers OEM and ODM services that includes product design and support, new product introduction, industrial engineering, manufacturing systems, and integrated supply chain management.

The two companies are currently working on the details and intend to sign a definitive agreement following the development of a roll out plan. Ionics has recently completed its feasibility study on the program with a go-forward outcome. Ionics has telecommunications partners in place and has identified customers that are in need of cloud storage and computing.

LeoNovus has released a new product called the Enterprise Service Node (ESN) that will support local in-country control of these cloud resources. This is ideal for Ionics, enabling them to manage cloud customers directly. The ESN connects into the LeoNovus Intelligent Cloud to receive and sync updates but can operate locally for purposes of handling customers directly, while reducing latency for better quality of service in country.

"LeoNovus offers an extremely efficient and secure geo-distributed cloud, as well as a low-cost structure," said Earl Qua, Vice President of Ionics EMS, Inc. "The companies within the Philippines market can benefit by leveraging existing computing end-points to meet their data growth, and do so in a cost-effective manner. We are looking forward to working with LeoNovus to service our rapidly growing market."

"We are extremely pleased to work with Ionics. They are an experienced company that brings in-depth industry knowledge to the partnership," said Gordon Campbell, CEO of LeoNovus. "The workforce for many companies is becoming more mobile and global with high-growth demand for secure data management. Secure high-capacity cloud services enable immediate interaction and transactions, and with the LeoNovus proprietary networking technology, companies can achieve highly efficient computing and significant cost savings at the same time."

This partnership represents a new market opportunity for LeoNovus in partnering with international companies that can enable the LeoNovus technology within their networks for deployment of cost-efficient, secure, high-quality cloud solutions in country. Ionics is a well-respected global company with key strategic partners in need of these services, which creates a significant business opportunity for both companies.
