MONROE, La. -- CenturyLink Cloud continues to expand its global footprint. Today, CenturyLink is giving customers a new public cloud deployment option in Canada. Effective immediately, customers can deploy and manage virtual resources in a “CA3” cloud node in the CenturyLink Toronto “TR1” facility.

For businesses based in Canada, and those that do business in Canada, this new CenturyLink Cloud node offers several benefits: data sovereignty (for compliance), performance (host your apps close to your users) and the best aspects of having the CenturyLink Cloud available in a CenturyLink facility:

  • Scale. The CA3 node is built to handle the pent-up demand for cloud services in Canada.
  • Advanced connectivity. CenturyLink customers who already deploy resources in the TR1 location can now connect existing infrastructure to CenturyLink’s public cloud offering. Customers using nearby TR3, CenturyLink’s new Toronto data center opening later this year, will also be able to take advantage of this capability.
  • Self-service access to a robust set of cloud services. Users have Lots of options to build and manage enterprise cloud environments, including Hyperscale instances with 100% flash storage for Hadoop and NoSQL workloads.

    The new Toronto CA3 facility boast the full CenturyLink Cloud product catalog, including:

  • Compute. Deploy servers with custom CPU and RAM dimensions.
  • Storage. Block storage for app data. Customers can opt for our premium storage option that auto-replicates data from our Toronto facility to our Vancouver location. This provides geo-redundancy and preserves data sovereignty for mission-critical workloads.
  • Networking. Create and manage complex network topologies all via self-service - load balancers, VPNs, and firewalls.

    Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

    During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

    She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
