Canadian Data Centers have been running smooth and all Canadian accounts are now provisioned within Canada automatically.
Coming in later 2016 Office 365 Business will be available within Canadian Data Centers.
Once available, all data will reside on Canadian soil providing a highly requested feature by many Canadian companies. There will be two locations for fail-over and redundancy. One data center will be located in Toronto while the other in Quebec. Having these two locations geo-graphically separated, provided an added benefit of redundancy.
- Toronto & Quebec are key hubs for extensive internet connections and providers.
- Close proximity to key hubs such as New York where there is extensive networks to reduce latency.
- Existing clients will be able to migrate their data to Canada Centers following initial launch.
Now your business can be assured your data is on Canadian soil and in the event of failure in one data center, will fail-over to another Canadian data center.
Will have more updates closer to launch towards mid year.
