• Who We Are

    Cognitive Application Network Solutions (CANS)

    Cognitive Application Network Solutions (CANS) was formed in 2015 to address market needs for enterprise database management across all cloud environments. The critical industry problems CANS addressed include:

    1. Current DBaaS cloud solutions do not provide vendor independent multi-cloud data mobility (auto-failover, auto-scaling, auto-migration) without disrupting the user experience
    2. Secure multi-cloud management environments require custom solutions, multi-vendor integration complexity and vendor lock-in 
    3. Enterprises want to adopt and leverage public cloud projected ROIs to reduce CAPEX and OPEX.

    CANS Sentient DataBase as a Service (DBaaS) provides automated and secure enterprise management with database mobility across all hybrid cloud environments.

    Sentient Database Platform (SDP) provides self-healing, self-scaling and location-transparent SQL and NoSQL databases in real time, giving end-to-end visibility and quality of service assurance where performance is optimized with no service outages

    We believe that the Sentient Database Platform (SDP) is the only DBaaS solution on the market that manages hybrid cloud environments with data mobility

    SDP manages distributed SQL and NoSQL databases as if they were in one datacenter, from one console, with automated data migration in public or private clouds without service disruption.
