BROSSARD, QUEBEC -- (Marketwired) -- 05/05/14 -- DIAGNOS Inc.

Upon the closing of the Transaction, shareholders of WARNEX will receive one common share of DIAGNOS for each common share of WARNEX held. For the purposes of the Transaction, each of the DIAGNOS common shares and the WARNEX common shares have been attributed a value of $0.08 per share. Each shareholder of WARNEX and of DIAGNOS will, upon the closing of the Transaction, also be entitled to receive an additional half-warrant for each WARNEX common share or DIAGNOS common share held. Each whole warrant will be exercisable into one common share of DIAGNOS at an exercise price of $0.10 per share for a period of twelve months following the closing of the Transaction.

You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.

The media, of course, continues to extol the virtues of the cloud, including how easy it is to get there. Migrating...
