SUNNYVALE, Calif., March 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- LeoNovus Inc., (TSX: LTV.v) a leading Internet and distributed cloud provider with its geo-dispersed distributed Cloud, today announced that Picture Mosaics is a new customer for its wide-area data management services, using the LeoNovus geo-dispersed distributed cloud for high performance compute. Picture Mosaic produces large images from a variety of multimedia files that can range between many MBs to GBs and require on-demand networks when transferring files from site to site, as well as high-speed for meeting tight project deadlines.
Picture Mosaics, located in Blue Bell, PA, designs and markets state-of-the-art mosaic software and design techniques, pushing the mosaic concept further into every possible print and multimedia genre to include stunning HD mosaic animation and a new online interactive mosaic platform 5 with full HTML5 support. The creation of a photo mosaic is an art form, not just the product of a mathematical equation. Mosaic projects range from small-scale masterpieces, to eye-catching murals, tradeshow backdrops, striking inMotion video mosaic, or even an interactive on-line digital mosaic experience.
A photo mosaic has a resolution ranging from 90 mega pixels to 500 mega pixels, depending on the size of the mosaic (keep in mind that the top digital cameras only have a resolution of about 18 to 24 mega pixels). After the picture is rendered, it will be printed at 2880 to 4800+ dpi (three to six times that of photo-quality).
"LeoNovus is a good fit for delivering on-demand, geo-dispersed, high-performance concurrent computing, which improves our turn-around times and enables faster time to market," said Albert Charpentier, CEO of Picture Mosaics. "We also have high value clients that are concerned about higher reliability and security of their multimedia assets, which the LeoNovus distributed cloud service delivers above and beyond servers housed in commercial data centres."
"We are extremely pleased that Picture Mosaics selected us as their multimedia-compute partner," said Gordon Campbell, CEO of LeoNovus. "They are a company with superior technology and impressive clients including Fortune 500 high-value brands such as AT&T, Proctor and Gamble, ESPN, CNN, McDonald's, BMW, Intel and Samsung to name a few. We look forward to supporting their requirement for high performance rendering with higher reliability and security as part of our distributed cloud."
LeoNovus offers increased security and disaster recovery across geo-dispersed endpoints with high-level redundancy. Additionally, LeoNovus offers on-demand compute, adding additional processor cores to increase performance on compute-intensive rendering frames concurrently for a faster time to market. This is a premium service that is cost effective by having a scalable distributed data centre. This approach also has a high-level of reliability, and unlike traditional data centers that can be completely knocked out by storms or other unpredictable disasters, the LeoNovus distributed cloud services allow for immediate recovery due to redundancy across a broader geographical area.

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now all corporate assets – people, objects, and spaces – can share information about themselves and thei...

The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Yet a closer inspection at the data reveals less than half of these cloud projects involve production...

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
