Microsoft Cloud Coming to Canada: Partners Expect Warm Welcome from Government, Industry
Beginning in 2016, Microsoft will deliver commercial cloud services from Canada. Azure, Office 365 and Dynamics CRM Online will be delivered from Toronto and Quebec City, strengthening Microsoft's footprint in Canada's competitive cloud landscape.
General availability of Azure is anticipated in early 2016, followed by Office 365 and Dynamics CRM Online later in the year. These new locally deployed services will address data residency considerations for Microsoft customers that are looking to the cloud for business solutions.
