MYRA Systems presented the benefits of VDI and Nimble Storage at the Harley Davidson Museum in Burnaby. MYRA discussed the inherent storage challenges faced when implementing VDI and how Nimble Storage mitigates risk and improves performance while reducing costs. See the Nimble Storage website for more information.
Afterwards, the group toured through the Harley Davidson Museum and a couple of MYRAns decided to see what it would be like to ride an old Harley through the desert.

The MYRA Milers not only took to the pavement running for the 2011 Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure, but they also raised over $2500 to support this worthy cause. The Run for the Cure is Canada’s largest single day, volunteer-led fundraising event dedicated to raising funds for breast cancer research, and education and health promotion initiatives. This year’s event took place Canada-wide on Sunday, October 2.
MYRA Systems hosted an online auction to raise money for the Cure and it was a huge success. From gift certificates to top hotels, Starbucks and massages to coffee makers and duffel bags to jewelry and nice pens – we had something for everyone. The money went to a good cause AND it was a ton of fun! Our own app development team created an interactive auction that was enjoyable, a little competitive.

For the 4th year MYRA Systems will be participating and sponsoring the Annual HP Charity Golf Classic. This event is in support of the Victoria General Hospital.
The General Hospital is home to the only Level 3 Neonatal Intensive Care Unit on Vancouver Island. There are only three Level 3 Neonatal Intensive Care Units in British Columbia, including the one at Victoria General Hospital (the other two are in Vancouver). A Level 3 Neonatal Intensive Care Unit provides the widest variety of advanced care available for all newborns, including surgery. Each year nearly 600 tiny babies receive care in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Victoria General Hospital. This includes infants from all over Vancouver Island as well as from elsewhere in the province.
Babies in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit need continuous observation and monitoring, intensive nursing, and sometimes life-supporting care such as breathing assistance. The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Victoria General Hospital is responsible for newborns who require complex one-to-one care around the clock. The Victoria Hospitals Foundation is a registered charity that supports excellence in health care at Vancouver Island's largest hospitals - Royal Jubilee and Victoria General - by raising funds for priority medical equipment and patient care programs.
This year our goal is to provide funding for several new infant resuscitators, which are designed to deliver safe amounts of oxygen to premature babies, and ensure that these infants receive the best possible care.
We look forward to your support to help the tiny patients of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Victoria General Hospital.
