Haven’t posted in a while due to project commitments, however this is one announcement we’ve been waiting on for a long time!  All those customers holding off moving to the Microsoft cloud in Canada due to regulatory and compliance reasons over data sovereignty, can now get moving.  Many to be fair have been in the planning stages for some time, whether for a migration of email to Office 365/Exchange Online, or additionally into Azure.  I’ve completed a few Exchange Hybrid and Azure IaaS POC for example where customers have tested the water but had to hold off on complete data migration.

Read all the announcements here:
