In addition, the multiyear agreement with Stratus targets 2,000 students in American Samoa in its first year. The integration of the Stratus platform and STEM educators affords American Samoan students the opportunity to excel in computer programming, video game design, iPhone and Android app development, computer science concepts, animation, engineering and 3D design and printing. The goal of the program is to enable the American Samoa students to obtain a 21st Century skill set and set the foundation for careers with global technology companies.
Michael Korniczky, CEO of South Pacific Link, LLC, the ASGERF's investment vehicle, said that "Stratus Silver Lining's unique value proposition continues to be its agile, next generation, one touch, near instant self-provisioning platform that will allow rapid scaling of thousands of students in American Samoa with the best-in-class software in order to learn the skills that will enable the students to work at companies such as Google, Facebook and others which plan to use the Tafuna Spur undersea fiber as the catalyst for high-tech jobs in American Samoa. The main goals of this program are to ensure that the ASGERF Pension Fund is funded for generations of retirees and building a workforce in American Samoa capable of working in the tech sector for decades to come."
"Working with the ASGERF Board of Directors and its CEO, I'aulualo Fa'afetai Talia, who identified the monumental leap in tech jobs coming to American Samoa due to the Tafuna Spur undersea fiber being connected in American Samoa, we were able to demonstrate the potential of the Stratus Silver Lining platform to deliver hundreds of programming and engineering applications coupled with virtually unlimited computing and storage resources and accessible from any device, any time and from anywhere," said Dr. Alok Sharma, CEO and Founder of Stratus Silver Lining. "The ease of deployment of thousands of Virtual Desktops in the Cloud with the latest in software and applications will permit any student in American Samoa access to the same software and applications as students sitting in, for example, Silicon Valley."
