The Digital Accelerator for Innovation and Research (DAIR)
Get to market faster.
Reduce your product development costs.
DAIR leverages Canada’s investment in CANARIE and our research and education network to provide Canada’s high-tech entrepreneurs access to free cloud-based compute and storage resources to help them rev up product development and gain a competitive edge in the global market.
Compared to commercial cloud services, DAIR offers high-performance resources, no hidden costs (no costs at all) and the assurance that your data stays in Canada.
Current users leverage DAIR to develop, test, and demonstrate a range of products, including offerings in mobile applications, multimedia offerings, IT security systems, and many more.
DAIR provides entrepreneurs free self-serve access to 4 high performance virtual servers. By comparison, a year of using similar resources on commercial cloud provider Amazon AWS would cost a minimum of $2,800 USD and on Rackspace a minimum of $2,100 USD.
