Agility CMS is proudly hosted in Azure and a Certified Microsoft partner, so we're very excited that Microsoft announced earlier today that it's planning to launch commercial cloud services (Azure, as well as Office 365 and Dynamics CRM) in Canada. Data centers will be opened in Toronto and Quebec City next year.
"Soon, the Microsoft Cloud will be truly Canadian," Kevin Turner, Worldwide Chief Operating Officer, said. "This substantial investment in a Canadian cloud demonstrates how committed we are to bringing even more opportunity to Canadian businesses and government organizations, helping them fully realize the cost savings and flexibility of the cloud."
In Canada, total public cloud spend is estimated to increase by $2.5 billion by 2016, according to IDC. Public crowd infrastructure will boast the most growth with a 45 per cent boost by next year.
These development will solve data residency considerations for Microsoft's Canadian customers and partners that are making cloud a bigger part of their businesses.Add a Comment | Back to Top
