Last week, we had the chance to be on site to admire the last Sun innovation; the first virtualized datacenter. Indeed, Sun begins a world tour to present his new innovation and they were in Montreal last week thus we did not miss the occasion to attend the event.

What is Project Blackbox? Code-named Project Blackbox, this Sun innovation is the first virtualized datacenter, rapidly deployable and optimized for extreme space, energy, and performance efficiency. Project Blackbox enables “instant-on” expansion while maximizing savings and providing operational flexibility to address two of today’s most critical IT issues: space constraints and soaring energy prices.

For more details about Project Blackbox and the official Sun Tour 2007, visit the following address http://www.sun.com/emrkt/blackbox/index.jsp

Here are some pictures taken during the event.

iWeb Group Inc. announces its results for the second quarter: Strong increase in revenues and in EBITDA.

Published on May 22, 2007 at 5:24 pm by iWeb Technologies in: iWeb Articles

We released today our financial results for our second quarter of the financial year 2006-07, ending March 31, 2007. For this second quarter, consolidated revenues increased by $912,752 or 66% against the same period in 2006. Revenues totalled $2,290,877 compared to $1,378,125 in 2006.

A special item reduced the income before income taxes for an amount of $95,779. In March 2007, the Company modified a bonus clause in a subordinated debt with the owner of the debt. That clause specified that an amount representing half of one percent of the Company?s market value was payable as March 26, 2011, the maturity date of the debt. Expecting that this bonus value could increase in the next four years, the Company decided to repurchase the bonus clause on March 16, 2007, for an amount equal to the fair value of the bonus clause, resulting in a charge of $95 779 against second quarter earnings.

With this special item, net earnings for the quarter ended March 31, 2007, was $21,710 compared to an amount of $189,057 for the same period in 2006. The decrease in net earnings is also due to an increase in publicity expenses incurred in order to have a greater visibility in the Company?s targeted markets, and by an increase in financial expenses.Management expects that these publicity and financial expenses recorded in 2007 will help the ongoing growth of the Company, and increase its future profitability.

Gross margins went from 53.4% of revenues in 2006 to 56.0% of revenues for this last quarter.

Earnings before interest, taxes and depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) improved again to reach $487,244 against $359,709 for the same period in 2006. This increase confirmed the Company?s ability to generate improving positive cash flows.

During the quarter ended March 31, 2007, the Company had proceeded to a major combination of its current debt, and negotiated new loans totalling $4.5M to finance its new data center.
