    Web giant Amazon announced it will open a data centre for its AWS cloud services in Montreal – the first such data centre outside the U.S. in North America.

    AWS, which stands for Amazon Web Services, offers a suite of computer services for businesses delivered over the Internet, like data storage and analytics.

    In a corporate blog post, the company said the data centre will be carbon-neutral.

    The Quebec government and local entrepreneurs have for years promoted the province as an attractive location for data centres. They cite cheap and plentiful hydroelectric power and the cold climate as ideal for cooling heat-generating server farms. For further details please go to:

    Leading provider of contract packaging software solutions recognized as one of the fastest growing technology companies in North America

    TORONTO, ONTARIO — November 17, 2015: Nulogy received Deloitte’s prestigious Technology Fast 50 and Fast 500 Awards for being one of the fastest growing companies in Canada and in North America. The company achieved a growth of 352% over the last four years, the entirety of which was organic growth. Nulogy was recognized as the 26th fastest growing company in Canada, and was also named as the 200th fastest growing company in North America. Nulogy’s growth is attributed to its award-winning, patented technology that enables supply chain operations to produce consumer products more safely, efficiently, and responsively. 

    “Over the past decade, Nulogy’s solutions have fulfilled the supply chain industry’s critical need to scale through innovation, while meeting the stringent needs of regulated supply-chain environments,” said Jason Tham, CEO at Nulogy. “Traditional computing simply cannot keep up with supply chains in constant motion, and our growth can be attributed to our ability to capture the potential of this moment. We do so by connecting and enabling manufacturing supply chains with the necessary intelligence, integration and information capabilities to bring new products to market.”

    Tham also credits the company’s success to its ability to attract and retain top talent, stating “Our team’s dedication to building great products that solve our industry’s most difficult problems is the reason we’ve been able to grow at such an exceptional pace.” Nulogy has also received the Aon Hewitt Best Employer Award for a second year in a row for its employee satisfaction and leadership practices.
