Fluential Leverages LeoNovus Distributed Cloud for Data Security and High-Level Redundancy Compute and Storage

LeoNovus Data Preservation and On-Demand Compute supports Fluential's natural language processing technologies: Increasing mobile speed, security and disaster recovery of consumer data that span speech recognition, natural dialog communication, artificial

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Jan. 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- LeoNovus™ Inc., (TSX: LTV.v) a leading Internet and distributed cloud provider with its SMART Media® Platform and geo-dispersed distributed Cloud, today announced that Fluential (www.fluential.com) is a new customer for wide-area data management services using the LeoNovus distributed cloud for compute and storage. The LeoNovus efficient "Dark Core" processing technology allows for full and efficient utilization of idle processors within and across LeoNovus enabled hardware systems for purposes of delivering fast, secure, and cost-effective storage and compute capabilities to fit their needs.

Fluential, located in Silicon Valley, California, is a leader in advanced speech and linguistic interfaces, enabling people to communicate with devices simply by using their voice. This is accomplished via Fluential's proprietary and patented set of technologies that span speech recognition, natural dialog communication, artificial intelligence, natural language processing, machine learning, and probabilistic inference.

"LeoNovus is a good fit for delivering on demand geo-dispersed compute and storage with increased security and reliability for higher disaster recovery," said Farzad Ehsani, founder and CEO of Fluential.   "We also believe having compute and storage in dense urban areas will deliver faster service to our mobile customers."

LeoNovus offers increased security and disaster recovery across geo-dispersed end-nodes with high-level redundancy and a fault tolerance at 70% device failure before experiencing any impact. This approach has a high-level of reliability, and unlike traditional data centers that can be completely knocked out by storms or other unpredictable disasters, this allows for immediate recovery due to redundancy across a broader geographical area.

"The rapidly growing demand for vast amounts of storage at data centers, whether for the enterprise or cloud services, needs a solution to lowering costs and ensuring data is secure," said Gordon Campbell, Chairman and CEO at LeoNovus. "Large data centers face the challenge of a year to three years to plan and fully deploy due to an extensive list of time-consuming requirements: acquire land, build a center, comply with government policy and regulations, secure adequate bandwidth, deploy computing power and storage, and do so with a footprint that reduces carbon emissions. The LeoNovus Dark Core processing technology provides the optimal solution by providing highly reliable cloud services—and it offers its customers full control over their Intellectual Property unlike many traditional data centers."
