360 Visibility Launches 360 Cloud for Dynamics

Canadian Microsoft partner 360 Visibility has released 360 Cloud, a dedicated cloud service using Microsoft Azure that will focus on hosting Microsoft Dynamics and Office in the cloud.

As the company describes, 360 Cloud offers:

  • The means for users to address data residency considerations in Canada.
  • A robust, flexible platform that lets users quickly build, deploy and manage their Dynamics software (such as GP, NAV and CRM).
  • The cost-effectiveness that comes with a scalable cloud data center in which users only pay for the services they need and use.
  • The ability to react quickly and appropriately to changing infrastructure conditions.
  • The ability to work productively from anywhere in the world.

This release comes on the heels of Microsoft decision to invest in locally-delivered cloud services across two new Azure regions in Ontario and Quebec, according to company officials. New facilities in Quebec City and Toronto will deliver commercial cloud services beginning in early 2016. Office 365 and Dynamics CRM Online will be unveiled later that year.
