Sphere 3D Glassware 2. Application Containerization Technology Increases Financial Advisor Productivity for Canada's Fastest Growing Mortgage and Lending Provider
Sphere 3D Corp., a containerization, virtualization and data management solutions provider, today announced its successful project installation of Glassware 2.0 at Dominion Lending Centres Mortgage Village (DLC Mortgage Village). DLC Mortgage Village's lending professionals can securely access mission critical financial legacy applications and industry credit facilities using Glassware 2.0 whether in the office or remotely via PCs and the latest mobile devices. Sphere 3D's GW2000 appliance, which utilizes Glassware 2.0 containerization technology, provides DLC Mortgage Village financial advisors with secure, full access to banking credit, authentication and processing systems (normally only available in branch).

This installation was accomplished without the need to re-code, re-tool or re-format applications or content - ensuring zero disruption to existing business processes. In fact, the project installation was filmed live (see November 10, 2015 video at and took under one hour to complete. As DLC Mortgage Village expands its locations, Sphere 3D application containerization solutions provides DLC Mortgage Village with the ability to offer better service and recruit qualified advisors, by having access to the latest technology.

"DLC Mortgage Village's selection of Sphere 3D is an ideal example of how on-cloud and on-premise deployment strategies are enabling financial institutions to securely boost productivity and customer service - by modernizing branch-based solutions," said Eric Kelly, CEO of Sphere 3D. "This is an exciting venture for Sphere 3D, as we provide DLC Mortgage Village with high availability access to vital financial data, credit approval and lending systems for advisors, branches and remote users across multiple cities. This allows DLC Mortgage Village to operate as a cohesive team and further demonstrates our technology leadership in secure application virtualization for mission-critical processes."

According to Jonathan Tillger, Co-Owner of DLC Mortgage Village, "Our Glassware 2.0 environment is essential to maintaining customer service in the competitive mortgage and commercial lending market place - it allows us to quickly access customer files and credit systems securely from any location. Our team is expanding rapidly. We needed to select a technology that would grow with our business and support multiple office advisors and key administrative personnel so they can work remotely, in fact from as far as 6,000 miles from our office headquarters. We don't have time to focus on managing technology, as that distracts us from our core business. I was pleasantly surprised that Sphere 3D's Glassware 2.0 solution took under one hour to deploy! We are excited by the opportunity to provide modern mobile tools to our team and confident that sensitive customer data is safely stored, as Glassware 2.0 eliminates potential security vulnerabilities."
