UniserveCloud Launches on Joyent Platform as Joyent Closes $85M Funding Round

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 1, 2012) - Following a successful 3 month Beta trial, Uniserve (TSX VENTURE:USS) has launched its Joyent-backed Cloud platform in Canada, under the brand UniserveCloud.com.

"Licensing the Joyent platform, backed by Dell, was a perfect way for Uniserve to roll out a proven technology with all the security, scalability, reliability and support required by the Canadian development and enterprise markets." said Mike Schmidt, CEO of Uniserve Communications. "We have seen significant interest in the platform and the adoption by our customers is greater than we expected."

"Uniserve provided an excellent option for us to develop and host our SaaS-based billing products and mobile commerce platform," stated Ajay Hans, President and CEO of Alligato Mobile. "It was important for us to pick a Canadian based scalable and secure Cloud solution. The Uniserve Cloud with Joyent SmartMachines was the perfect fit for us."

Uniserve's Cloud technology is licenced from Joyent, a global cloud computing software and service provider, who recently secured $85M in funding to roll out a collection of "seamlessly connected high performance clouds serving global corporations on every continent", the company says. Uniserve is excited to be Joyent's key partner in Canada and bringing their SmartDataCenter software to Canadian customers.
