Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) October 27, 2014

AURO Enterprise Cloud has released its updated cloud system that incorporates the latest version of OpenStack Icehouse and greatly expands their Canadian cloud computing services and capabilities. AURO was built to give Canada its first true enterprise public cloud that can support a wide range of cloud computing requirements. With a free account, customers get immediate access to a single platform that can deliver highly scalable public cloud, private cloud and hybrid cloud services including operational and architectural compatibility with AWS. In addition, for the first time businesses have cloud computing pricing that matches or beats all other cloud computing providers. Whether its hybrid deployments of applications, bursting during peak usage to the public cloud or repatriation of apps, AURO provides a single service that integrates the management of public and private cloud services into a single environment.

With this new release, AURO's Public Cloud takes advantage of the most advanced distribution of OpenStack's cloud operating system and incorporates enterprise-grade enhancements that solve real problems for businesses. Features like geo-replication, usage metrics and resource utilization, application automation including auto-scaling groups, compatible APIs with AWS, management tools like Chef and Vagrant, virtual networks and advanced security tools to ensure customers are able to maintain data integrity and meet strict compliance and governance needs. AURO operates across Canada and is a 100% Canadian service giving customers the benefit of strict data controls.

"The goal from day one has been to give our customers a Canadian-made on-demand, elastic, cloud ready infrastructure that delivers the economic benefits of other large public cloud services but with the ability to control where your data resides. AURO is a real game changer for businesses inside and outside of Canada. Insecure clouds used to be the only option if you wanted access to large public computing but now customers have the option of production-grade cloud services that are readily available in Canada,” said Matt McKinney, Chief Strategy Officer at AURO. “While there have been some limited options in Canada, nobody has delivered the scale, expertise and compliance methodologies to meet real world challenges like AURO. Over the next few months, we will have comprehensive coverage that includes Vancouver, Toronto, Calgary, Montreal and Halifax with more to come."

With more than seventeen years of experience hosting and infrastructure, AURO customers also have immediate access to a support team that is full of cloud experts. The support team has spent years supporting a wide range of technologies including VMware, Xen and Hyper-V for business customers, and over the last two years they have built an in-house team of OpenStack experts to support new and current customers. Whether it is migration assistance, cloud design or application support, AURO’s team can act as an extension of any businesses existing IT requirements.
