VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Feb. 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- AURO, the first Canadian enterprise public cloud, announced an expansion of their cloud computing Software as a Service (SaaS) marketplace with their new "Tools for Applications" program created specifically for SaaS and cloud-based application customers.
"Tools for Applications" benefits those who need expert support, services and tools to manage their application at every stage of the development lifecycle. This new offering includes services designed specifically for developing applications, migrating existing workloads to the cloud, creating and developing a cloud-based application, DevOps, setting up testing and development environments and ensuring backup is available for data replication.
With "Tools for Applications," customers minimize the risks of adopting a new delivery model, consequently reducing capital investment and get to market faster. There is no need to run or manage any infrastructure, therefore allowing SaaS companies the ability to use the cloud to stay focused on building and shipping to their customers.
As AURO is Canadian-based, every customer benefits from their 100% Canadian cloud environment. AURO provides SaaS customers with variable services and compliance programs to help meet strict uptime, governance and support requirements for mission critical workloads. The Tools for Applications program includes compliance standards based on AT101 SOC 2 Type 2, PHIPA and ISO 27002 certifications.
Industry leading Market Research company Q-FI Solutions has been using AURO since its launch.
"Our online survey platform is used to collect and store sensitive information, and AURO's added security allows our clients to gain a competitive advantage. In addition, AURO provides a truly scalable solution we can rely on to support our growth," said Rafael Mangra, Chief Innovation Officer at Q-FI Solutions.
Every SaaS customer on AURO's public cloud benefits from the ability to test their ideas at a low cost with the ability to scale up as needed. With AURO, users also have the ability to leverage multiple cloud availability zones in Canada, including Toronto, ON and Vancouver, BC. Customers get instant access to industry-leading tools like cloud load balancers, cloud databases, object and block storage.
AURO was built on the premise that many SaaS and cloud-based customers are concerned about vendor lock-in that could potentially limit them to one cloud provider unless they are willing to spend time and money to recode an application. With AURO, everything is powered by OpenStack and will remain compatible through the use of open standards – there is no vendor lock-in. AURO is highly redundant and offers cloud computing, networking and storage with full API compatibility.
Starting February 1st, all new SaaS customers can receive at least one month of cloud credits and may qualify for even more with AURO's SaaS initiative to get Canadian applications and services in the cloud. To learn more, contact AURO via email at email@example.com or by phone at 1-855-226-4678.
AURO was built using OpenStack to give Canada its first true enterprise public cloud that can support a wide range of cloud computing requirements. With a free account, open APIs and Canadian cloud storage, customers get a platform that can deliver highly scalable public, private and hybrid cloud services, including operational and architectural compatibility with AWS. In addition, businesses now have cloud computing pricing that matches or beats other cloud computing providers. It is easy to use, self-serviced and available to everyone. AURO delivers a portfolio of services that include IT Infrastructure and cloud hosting, while giving users the benefits of Canada's unique regulatory environment and data security, all within a 100% Canadian platform.
