360 Visibility is pleased to announce that Microsoft Azure Cloud is now available in Canada. The in-country presence of this new pair of Microsoft datacentres — in Toronto and Quebec City — represents a historic event. With it, Microsoft declares a commitment to Canada like never before.

Cloud Servers in Toronto and Quebec City

The new locally delivered services mean Canadian customers score the same industry-leading levels of security, compliance, privacy, control and transparency that have long defined the Microsoft cloud globally. With it, customers can store their data at home, inside the secure embrace of Microsoft’s well-established, enterprise-grade reliability and performance. A private connection to the cloud with Azure ExpressRoute is optionally available.

The news delivers benefits across a wide swath of this country’s computing population, including SMBs, enterprise and the general public.

The Microsoft Cloud offers SMBs the ability to collaborate and compete effectively and affordably in an increasingly mobile world, all the while confident that their data is as accessible as it is protected. Better yet, small business owners can scale up or down on the cloud as their needs demand — saving significant IT infrastructure costs.

Enterprise clients can integrate their existing IT environment to Azure securely and, once hooked up, get the agility, availability and flexibility of the two new self-functioning Canadian datacentres.

Finally, for the general public, the development means they can finally access the benefits of the public cloud, namely: top-notch reliability, control, transparency and performance (including data replication in multiple locations to ensure business continuity), and the alleviation of regulatory compliance concerns.

In September, Microsoft will sweeten the deal further by adding data residency in Canada for Dynamics CRM Online.

The days of worrying about which country your data is stored in, for Government, Health Care and business alike, are over. Microsoft Azure provides state of the art, secure, and fast cloud servers for all your most critical data.
