New Microsoft Canadian Datacentres Expand COMPAREX Canada's Growth

TORONTO, May 11, 2016 /CNW/ -- Jason Mackay, General Manager of COMPAREX Canada, is thrilled with Microsoft's recent announcement of new datacentres' general availability across Canada. The launch of these datacentres enables more Canadian organizations to capitalize on the local accessibility and security of the Microsoft Cloud, as well as cloud-based solutions like Office 365 and Dynamics CRM Online.

"The launch of Microsoft datacentres in Toronto and Quebec City is significant to many Canadian businesses as it creates opportunities to leverage the Microsoft Cloud locally. Organizations, especially within the financial and Public sectors, can now take comfort in data residency and redundancy within multiple locations in Canada," says Mr. Mackay. "COMPAREX's expertise and global experience with Microsoft technologies positions us as the first-choice partner for companies looking to migrate and manage their infrastructure in the Cloud."

COMPAREX offers Unified Cloud Management for Azure and for Office 365, two programs that focus on the management and optimization of an organization's cloud usage and investment. Proprietary reporting tools allow IT teams to streamline the management of identities, storage, backup, and growth in the cloud. Having completed thousands of migrations to Office 365, including Microsoft's largest recorded migration of 350K seats, COMPAREX's global experience sets them apart.

"Our goal is to deliver Canada's most trusted and complete cloud to power Canadian businesses and governments and ultimately enable them to achieve greater impact. By offering fully integrated cloud services, we create simple, cost-effective solutions that empower our customers," said Janet Kennedy, president of Microsoft Canada.
