Why Businesses Should Consider Moving to AURO for Their Cloud Computing Needs.

With AURO being the first true enterprise public cloud to guarantee data sovereignty in Canada, businesses can find significant benefits in onboarding their business critical infrastructure to their Canadian cloud computing platform.

Vancouver, BC (PRNewswire) April 21, 2015

Launched in November of 2014, AURO is the first and only true enterprise cloud computing system in Canada. They guarantee 100% data sovereignty on their OpenStack powered cloud and now offer open-source app deployments with their one-click app launcher including the general availability of Windows and Microsoft SQL servers. But these are just some of the reasons to onboard into the cloud.

The cloud computing momentum is growing in Canada as many enterprises are moving from legacy in-house infrastructures to outsourcing to trusted third parties. Partnering up with a cloud partner can remove costly long-term CAPEX expenditures and converts those costs into easier to manage OPEX. Companies have noted that with AURO, there are the additional benefits of working with a partner who can deliver a seamless migration of application workloads from existing infrastructure to AURO's Cloud Computing environment, as well as a flexible and open-source OpenStack platform, Canadian data sovereignty and no lock-ins for using their cloud.

For any business, moving onto the Canadian Cloud will deliver some instant benefits to their bottom line including cost savings, scalability, improved access to data, reduced employee headcount, minimal licensing, ability to move legacy systems and greater flexibility. But what most clients often don't realize are the hidden benefits of the cloud: higher work efficiency, ability to transform businesses with new strategies, improved operations, a tendency for forward thinking and better capital control.

"Data protection, data sovereignty, and data security play a huge part in our service," says AURO's Chief Strategy Officer Matt McKinney, "and from day one, our goal has been to deliver Canada's first true cloud computing system and help our customers transform their business and benefit from the cloud."

AURO has four datacenters in Vancouver, BC and Toronto, ON that have built-in redundancies to ensure 100% availability including N+1 redundant power, UPS generators, enhanced and on-site security and controlled access.

As an "open cloud," AURO utilizes OpenStack software that delivers true innovation. By joining this proactive open-source community of though leaders and global technology contributors, the infrastructure AURO builds is guaranteed to be continually growing and evolving in functionality to better fit business needs.
