Lake Shore Gold, a gold mining company from Canada, has moved its critical IT infrastructure to a private cloud hosting solution provided by Cogeco Data Services. The (Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) solution is housed in Cogeco Data Services’ wholly-owned data centers in Canada.
Lake Shore Gold, with major operations in Timmins, Ontario, chose Cogeco Data Services because of its secure cloud platform that would provide guaranteed uptime and the ability to scale easily with manageable operational expenditures.
“Although our traditional IT setup was still doing its job, our proactive move to a dedicated Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) solution made a lot of business sense,” said Raymond Yip, Director of Information Systems at Lake Shore Gold. “Lake Shore Gold operates in a highly competitive industry, so the ability to scale as needed and respond quickly to changing market conditions was important to our organization.”
“Cogeco Data Services appealed to us because of their commitment to helping us transition to IaaS,” Yip added. “A trusted relationship is the basis for making the move to the cloud work, picking the right partner is essential.”
Cogeco Data Services, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Cogeco Cable Inc. (TSX:CCA), has five wholly-owned data centers across Canada. The company offers a suite of ICT solutions among which managed IT services, private and public IaaS cloud hosting and connectivity.
