DataWind Inc. Opens Toronto Stock Exchange

MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 07/14/14 -- Editors Note: There is one photo associated with this press release.

DataWind Inc. ("DataWind" or the "Company") (TSX: DW), a leader in low-cost internet connectivity for emerging markets, was honored with initiating the siren to open trading at Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) today. The event celebrated the Company's recent initial public offering, successfully completed on July 8th, raising gross proceeds of CAN$30.0 million to expand the implementation of its patented and proprietary technology across emerging markets.

Raja Singh Tuli, Co-Chairman and CTO, Suneet Singh Tuli, President and CEO, and other members of the DataWind management team joined Michael Kousaie, Head of Business Development, Technology, Toronto Stock Exchange and TSX Venture Exchange, to mark the occasion.

Suneet Singh Tuli, President and CEO, DataWind said, "It is an absolute delight for DataWind to be part of the market opening ceremony today." Commenting further on the recent financing, he stated, "Our IPO on the TSX represents a major milestone for DataWind and gives us the resources to implement the next stage of our vision to bring the internet to billions of unconnected people in the developing world. The internet impacts nearly every aspect of modern society and serves as a powerful economic stimulator. Yet, only a small percentage of individuals in developing countries have internet access."

Raja Singh Tuli, Co-Chairman and CTO, DataWind said, "The world suffers from an internet infrastructure deficit, however, we believe our patented cloud based web delivery technology can effectively leverage existing cellular telephony networks to deliver affordable internet to 93% of the world population. Our technology holds the potential to help bridge the digital divide - effectively and in the most affordable manner."

Following the successful debut of DataWind's range of low cost tablet computers and internet solution by the Secretary General of the United Nations, Mr Ban-Ki-Moon, the Canadian company is now on a mission to empower the digitally disenfranchised to join the internet age.

DataWind has been recognized by the MIT Technology Review in its 2014 list of the World's 50 Smartest Companies, as the Company is acknowledged for its ability to break the affordability barrier with tablet computers for the population at the base of the pyramid, while delivering internet access on existing networks.

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" ...
Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud?

For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development. Integrating system-level analysis with microservices makes it easier to change and add functionality to applications at any time without the increase of risk.

All clouds are not equal.

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and micro services. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your contain...
