Daemon Defense Launches Private Cloud Based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux for Managed Cloud Hosting in Canada

Daemon Defense Systems Inc. 07/05/2011

Winnipeg, Manitoba – July 5, 2011 – Daemon Defense Systems Inc. (www.daemondefense.com) a privately held managed hosting company, announced the launch of a private cloud hosting solution housed entirely in Canada. This infrastructure will also power Daemon Defense’s next generation of research and development into Video over IP delivery solutions for educational institutions.

A private cloud solution gives larger companies and institutions the ability to launch high traffic websites and pay for the resources they use. Many of Daemon Defense’s clients are outgrowing a single server hosting solution and are looking to dedicated load balancers, enterprise DNS, snapshot backups, and high availability redundant servers among other things. The target customers for this technology are customers requiring a highly available website with all the data staying in Canada.

The move to a managed private cloud offering is a natural progression for the company. Daemon Defense has been hosting enterprise websites for over ten years using virtualization technology. The move to the cloud allows their clients to host all Internet infrastructure within Canadian borders. The managed offering is quick and easy to setup allowing clients to only pay for the resources they use.

“This market shift was an easy decision for us”, commented Justin Funke, President of Daemon Defense. “Leveraging our experience and expertise in this space with partners like Red Hat and Peer1 gives our clients an affordable managed private cloud offering in Canada. We went out to purchase cloud space for a project and when we realized the options were very limited, built one ourselves. Early response has been extremely positive from our clients indicating access to a private cloud on a Tier 1 network is something many IT managers have been waiting for.”

About Cloud Computing

Cloud computing is a general term for anything that involves delivering hosted services over the Internet. These services are broadly divided into three categories: Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS). The name cloud computing was inspired by the cloud symbol that’s often used to represent the Internet in flowcharts and diagrams. It is often sold on demand as a fully managed service.
