SUNNYVALE, CALIFORNIA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/14/14 -- LeoNovus® Inc. ("LeoNovus") (TSX VENTURE: LTV), a leading Internet and cloud provider with its geo-dispersed distributed cloud services, announces today an exclusive agreement for Canada with ITCI Invictus Technologies for the managed IT services market. This partnership enables LeoNovus to double its current capacity for its virtual distributed data center, strengthening LeoNovus' ability to offer high-speed and efficient cloud-based services. ITCI will be able to leverage LeoNovus' patented cloud-based technologies for its further expansion into Canada's IT market for outsourced managed services and products while lowering cost and generating revenue from this high growth cloud market.
As part of this agreement, LeoNovus licenses its proprietary client software onto ITCI computing devices that can then authenticate the LeoNovus geo-dispersed distributed network, thus expanding the virtual distributed data center. This adds high-value, on-demand, scalable compute-and-storage resources that increase reliability and redundancy with higher security for greater disaster recovery.
According to Research and Markets (www.researchandmarkets.com), a research firm, the managed services market is growing from $142 billion in 2013 to $256 billion by 2018, at a CAGR of over 12%. This market has witnessed accelerated growth in recent years due to advancements in cloud computing, big data and mobility services. Such outsourced services enable organizations to bring in the competencies they lack on an as-need basis; or to replace functions or processes that undergo huge recurring costs. Outsourced managed services reduce the recurring in-house IT costs by 30-40% and bring about 50-60% increase in efficiency.
"By utilizing LeoNovus' geo-dispersed data storage, ITCI is now able to offer hundreds of its clients the most secure and advanced computing solutions," said Hoss Astaraki, President of ITCI. "I believe we can transform the way data is managed and accessed, while enhancing security beyond any solution currently available in the industry. This will create Canada's largest, most environmentally friendly, and cost-effective virtual data center."
Mr. Astaraki further explained, "In 2005, it was ITCI who pioneered the first private cloud-computing infrastructure in Canada. As a result, we were able to eliminate on-site server requirements for our clients, which in turn saved them millions of dollars in technology expenditures. Once again, with the creation of Canada's first geo-dispersed distributed virtual data center, ITCI is positioned to offer cutting-edge technology to thousands of users, with plans to expand service offerings to millions of users across Canada in the coming months."
"Cloud computing is a boon to businesses who are responding to the resource and fiscal fluctuations of their markets," said Gordon Campbell, CEO of LeoNovus. "The workforce for many companies is becoming more mobile and global, and it expands and contracts to meet real-time demands. Secure high-capacity cloud services enable immediate interaction and transactions, and with the LeoNovus proprietary networking technology, companies can achieve highly efficient computing and significant cost savings at the same time."
This partnership marks LeoNovus' entry into a new vertical market that expands its geo-dispersed distributed endpoints beyond current markets such as the hospitality, which allows for greater reach across a broader area network.

When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
