Cybera’s Rapid Access Cloud is growing in popularity among open data and hackathon users, as more Albertans look for the compute resources to build data-based apps and innovative web tools.
Cybera's network connection between Calgary and Edmonton is now 7,000 times faster than average internet speeds in Canada, thanks to a new network link installed between the University of Alberta and the University of Calgary.
BlackBridge Networks and Cybera have made a new tool available that gives researchers easy access to Landsat 8satellite imagery. The imagery download service will benefit Canadian not-for-profit organizations that use geospatial information, including academic institutions, public groups, and research networks.
Over the past year, WestGrid has transferred more than 5 PB of research data across Cybera and CANARIE’s advanced networks in Western Canada, representing a 22% increase in network traffic from 2013-14.
Students and researchers at Mount Royal University now connect to CyberaNet at higher speeds — and with more bandwidth — than ever before, thanks to a collaboration of post-secondary, municipal and networking partners.
Over the last year, the services offered by Cybera, Alberta’s not-for-profit technology agency, to its 60+ K-12, post-secondary and public sector members generated well over $4 million in cost efficiencies.
In the year-and-a-half since its official launch, the Rapid Access Cloud has helped over 200 local users develop their ideas into products and services.
With recent news of Canadians facing rising bandwidth prices in 2015, and last month’s release of a US government report showing a lack of internet service competition in North America, Cybera is pleased to offer Alberta’s public internet users a positive start to the new year.
Cybera is pleased to announce that it has connected its network to the YYCIX Calgary Internet Exchange, a network traffic hub that is expected to have a significant impact on the price and quality of internet service in western Canada.
A University of Alberta professor has today unveiled a Dropbox-like tool that makes it quick and easy for researchers to transfer files that were previously considered too numerous or big - in the terabyte size range and beyond - to be transmitted.
