As Canada’s only wholesale provider of storage, compute and networking (IaaS) resources, ThinkOn helps organizations protect their critical data assets and optimize their application infrastructure costs.
ThinkOn provides a secure, fast, and scalable way to host enterprise applications, big data analytics, and disaster recovery-as-a-service solutions. This is achieved by leveraging Canada’s first integrated virtual data centre and storage services.
Their vision is to allow organizations design, deploy and operate enterprise applications using ThinkOn’s product portfolio, which allows any combination of compute, network, and storage resources managed with an easy-to-use user interface.
ThinkOn is one of many service partners part of the ORION Nebula, a value-added network of cloud and software services for Ontario’s research, education and innovation communities. Discover the benefits of the ORION Nebula:
All ORION Nebula services are delivered over the ORION network, so there is no need for additional connectivity, WAN services or transport. Access services through your existing ORION connection.
Service Level Agreements (SLA)
Each ORION Nebula partner provides an SLA to cover all aspects of the service, including performance measurement, problem management, customer duties, warranties, disaster recovery, and termination of agreement.
Made in Canada
All ORION Nebula services are hosted in Canada and delivered from within Canada. No data is stored in the USA or traverses the US border.
ORION can guarantee service delivery over the ORION Network, which is dedicated and private, meaning that customer traffic does not cross the Internet. ORION’s high performance network serves as the backbone over which ORION Nebula services travel, which easily scales to speeds up to 100Gbps.
Easy to Use
Each Nebula service offering is easy to understand, purchase and implement.
ORION’s commitment with its partners is to deliver cost-effective services, so customers can enjoy a competitive rate.
Best of Breed
ORION’s rigorous partner selection process ensures that each service provider is vetted from a technical, financial and business perspective so that ORION can deliver the best customer experience. Each service provider must have a proven track record and demonstrate successful implementations of the size, scope and quality that ORION customers require.
ThinkOn helps organizations protect their critical data assets and optimize their application infrastructure costs by providing a secure, fast, and scalable way to host enterprise applications, big data analytics, and disaster recovery-as-a-service solutions.
Instead of deploying point solutions for different infrastructure, customers can now protect all their data regardless of source. ThinkOn provides its own self-service portal, which enables customers to configure and manage their own backup policies, data restoration and schedule management. All customer data is stored on one archive with expandable storage space.
ThinkOn has always been focused on data; providing the infrastructure to help organizations collect, manage and leverage their data. ThinkOn offers Canada’s only commercially available Object Store (compatible with Amazon’s Simple Storage Service), in addition to two tiers of block-based data storage services, all of which are tightly coupled to a high-performance compute environment that supports both bare metal and hyper-visor based provisioning options.
The bare metal capabilities are perfectly suited to provide Hadoop and other similar analytics applications. The virtualized services can also support various types of workload that is both steady-state and variable.
