Good news for Canadian businesses, today there has been an announcement that there is going to be multiple Microsoft Canadian Data Centres opening soon.
Microsoft is actively in the news lately with multiple big announcements to win over long-term business. Yesterday we discussed how to get Microsoft Windows 10 free and today Microsoft made a huge announcement.
The current plan calls for two data centres in Canada including one that will be built in Toronto while the other will be located in Quebec City. Microsoft expects both data centres to be ready for operation by 2016.
Now Canadian companies will be able to use Microsoft commercial cloud services in their country and address data residency considerations. This will address many regulated industries including healthcare, education and many others. This is also great news for companies looking at cloud services but are being stopped by BC Privacy Act and other Canadian privacy acts.
