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.
AURO Cloud Computing, a complete public cloud designed to meet the requirements of next-generation cloud-based, scale-out applications such as social apps, mobile apps, SaaS/PaaS deployments and Big Data analytics.
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.
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.
