Sherritt International has signed up for a trial of Leonovus’ data security software as the nickel and cobalt miner looks to support its evolving storage infrastructure.
The pilot, which starts in January, will see Leonovus apply its “next generation of secure software-defined storage (SDS) solution” at the company’s operations in Canada, Cuba and Madagascar.
John Kiousis, Vice President of Global IT, Sherritt International, said the software will give the company the flexibility to segment data across multiple cloud storage providers, enabling it to take advantage of cost savings while protecting its data.
“Moving to the cloud will extend our IT infrastructure capabilities and support our goal of achieving operational excellence,” he added.
When using Leonovus, customers receive the following benefits, according to the Ottawa-based software provider:
- “Ability to balance business growth with a flexible hybrid, multi-cloud storage infrastructure;
- “Greater data security with Leonovus patented ‘encrypt, shred, spread’ capability;
- “Maintain complete, on-premises control, of their encryption keys;
- “Greater flexibility and simplicity to meet future data growth requirements through a single pane of glass.”
