Carbon60 Networks Expands Hybrid Cloud Hosting Portfolio With Managed Microsoft Azure Services

Carbon60 Adopts Azure Public Cloud to Manage Critical Applications and Workloads for Customers Seeking Scale and Reach With Hybrid IT

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - July 26, 2016) - Carbon60 Networks, a leading Managed Cloud and Security services provider, today announced support for managed Azure public cloud for clients in Canada and globally. Carbon60 now deploys workloads on Microsoft Azure securely integrated with its managed private cloud and application services for clients to leverage a flexible hybrid cloud hosting environment for their organizations.

"We are excited to leverage the scale and innovation that Microsoft Azure Cloud offers as we guide our customers towards the optimal platform for their applications to run on," said John Witte, President and CEO of Carbon60. "With Azure Cloud now in Canada, this gives us more flexibility with another infrastructure deployment option to meet the unique requirements from our customers for scale, reach and data sovereignty."

"It is great to see partners like Carbon60 embrace Microsoft cloud solutions to help drive digital transformation," said Janet Kennedy, president of Microsoft Canada. "The cloud offers unprecedented solutions, cost savings, efficiency, productivity and reliability. It enables organizations -- of any size, and in any sector -- to collaborate, compete and excel in an increasingly digital world."

"The accelerating growth in massive-scale cloud platforms is proof that end user adoption of cloud is reaching a tipping point. This has put strain on IT departments as they grapple with the complexity and learning curve with new services and technologies. The end result has been a surge in demand for managed cloud services," stated Philbert Shih, Managing Director at Structure Research. "Organizations are not just looking for infrastructure management. They want a partner like Carbon60 that acts like an extension to their own capabilities and has the specialized expertise to address unique requirements around areas like security, performance and application-level management."

Carbon60's first deployment using Azure was for the Sustainable Infrastructure Foundation (SIF) based in Switzerland. "SIF needed a secure digital platform to link private and public sector agencies to collaborate efficiently to accelerate infrastructure projects in the developing world," said Christophe Dossarps, CEO at SIF-IISS. "Critical sensitive information had to reside on Carbon60's Canadian private cloud based on the data residency preferences of our international clients, but Carbon60's managed Azure service was ideal for the testing environment for the agility it provides us. We rely on Carbon60 as our strategic managed cloud hosting and security partner to ensure a secure, reliable and scalable SharePoint platform so SIF can focus on promoting this important initiative to the global community."
