Microsoft has expanded the reach of its datacenters for Office 365, as it opens two more of them in Canada.
In a blog post, Microsoft stated:
Our new datacenter region is comprised of two geographically distributed datacenters located in Toronto and Quebec City. Providing data residency for customers in Canada will accelerate the growth and potential of Canadian industries and public sector organizations by providing more opportunities to innovate, collaborate and flourish in our increasingly mobile world by using the power of the Microsoft cloud. Both Office 365 and Microsoft Azure customers in Canada can now benefit from enterprise-grade reliability and performance combined with in-country data residency, including data replication within Canada.
In addition to Canada, Microsoft has also opened Office 365 datacenters in Japan, Australia and India in the last 18 months.
