(1) Net operating income and netback are non-IFRS measures. Net operating   
income and netback is defined as revenue less operating costs.              
(2) Since ETAP pays all taxes and royalties from its share of production,   
net operating income is effectively after tax to the Company.

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