Microsoft Canadian Datacentres Officially Open for Business

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - May 10, 2016) - Microsoft Canada announced today that the Microsoft Cloud is now officially open to power even more Canadian businesses. With this announcement, Microsoft Azure is generally available from local datacentre regions located in Toronto and Quebec City, and Office 365 is now offering data residency for Canadian business customers. In addition, Dynamics CRM Online is scheduled to go live by September 2016 to bring the most complete cloud, with leadership across IaaS, PaaS, SaaS, and hybrid scenarios, to enable people and organizations to achieve more.

This announcement marks a significant expansion of Microsoft's trusted cloud services into Canada. Azure and Office 365 customers gain the benefits of Microsoft's trusted cloud services combined with data residency in Canada. This includes data redundancy in multiple locations within Canada for business continuity and the option of a fast and private connection to the cloud with Azure ExpressRoute.
