MediaValet Selected to Participate in Operational Preview of Microsoft's New Canadian Cloud Services

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - March 22, 2016) - MediaValet Inc. (TSX VENTURE: MVP) announced today that it is one of a few select Canadian partners chosen by Microsoft to participate in the operational preview of Microsoft Azure cloud services being delivered for the first time in Canada. This follows Microsoft's press release on June 2nd, 2015 (http://reimagine.microsoft.ca/en-ca), announcing the opening of Microsoft's first Canadian data centers, to be located in Toronto and Montreal city.

"Today, we announced a significant milestone in Microsoft's expansion of trusted cloud services into Canada," said Mary-Ellen Anderson VP Developer Experience and Evangelism at Microsoft Canada. "We couldn't be more excited about the continued investment we're making to help our mutual partners transform to the next business era along with us."

Until now, MediaValet has been unable to meet the digital asset management needs of Canadian industries with strict data storage and compliance codes, such as education, healthcare and government. Microsoft's new Canadian cloud services will dramatically expand MediaValet's market opportunity in Canada, addressing the digital asset management (DAM) needs of both local and international organizations with operations in Canada.

"Microsoft has been a tremendous partner since we first began working on MediaValet in 2010," commented David MacLaren, founder and CEO of MediaValet. "Participating in the operational preview of Microsoft Azure's Canadian cloud services is a great honor for all of us at MediaValet. This marks another milestone in our relationship with Microsoft and for the first time, brings our solution home."

The two new Canadian data centers are part of Microsoft's plans to add six new cloud regions, all backed by Microsoft's $15 billion (USD) investment in global data center infrastructure. Now available in 140 countries, including China, Microsoft is continually investing in the latest infrastructure technologies, with a focus on high reliability, operational excellence, environmental sustainability and security.
