LeoNovus Distributed Data Centre Provides Customers Encrypted, Secure Cloud Services at the Edges from LTV Gateway Devices Deployed in Stratford

06:01 EDT Wednesday, May 22, 2013

Dark Core Technology delivers Higher-Level Redundancy, Disaster Recovery, and Business Continuity from Geo-Dispersed Cloud Services at a Significantly Lower Cost Structure

SUNNYVALE, Calif., May 22, 2013 /CNW/ - LeoNovus , Inc. ("LeoNovus" or the "Company") (TSXV: LTV), a leading Internet technology developer with its multi-dimensional SMART Media™ Software Platform and SMART Networks™ announced today that it has completed a third-party security audit as well as other milestones, to officially move its Dark Core technology-enabled distributed data centre to LTV Gateway devices currently deployed in Stratford, Ontario (Canada) and in Ottawa-and-California-based office buildings for commercial use. This validation certifies that LeoNovus is offering "best of class" security for meeting banking-level standards when supporting customer data for cloud services at the edges.

The LeoNovus Software Platform delivers full Internet access to provide unique, cost-effective solutions via a multiplicity of connected devices, enabling multi-source revenue streams for services and applications in the entertainment, home management, hospitality and healthcare market segments. LeoNovus has extensively tested and now meets third-party security requirements that its proprietary disruptive multi-core technology is commercially viable. This technology allows for full and efficient utilization of idle processors or "Dark Cores™" within and across hardware systems for purposes of delivering fast, secure, and cost-effective cloud services at the edges. Initial customers in California and Canada will first utilize storage, followed by taking advantage of the LeoNovus compute capabilities for smart analytics of their data.

"LeoNovus offers increased security and disaster recovery across geo-dispersed end-nodes with high-level redundancy and a default setting at 70% device failure before experiencing any impact," said Dan Willis, Chief Architect of LeoNovus. "This approach has a high-level of reliability and unlike traditional data centres that can be completely knocked out by storms or other unpredictable disasters, this will have immediate recovery due to redundancy across a broader physical area. Furthermore, our approach breaks files into small atomic elements that are encrypted and deployed across a physically dispersed network with no single device ever having the entire file."

"We're living in a world where data is doubling every two years, and consumers and organizations will create and replicate 1.8 trillion gigabytes of data (1.8 zettabytes) this year alone. Extrapolate these numbers over the next several years and you have unimaginable amounts of data that need managing," stated Gordon Campbell, Chairman and CEO of LeoNovus. "The LeoNovus SMART Media software and "Dark Core" technologies present a game changer that impacts multiple markets using vast amounts of data. Consumers and companies now have a means to harness the processing power within their environments to efficiently and cost-effectively manage data and create personal or proprietary networks without the high cost of power, cooling and real estate."
