Hosting solution Cloud at Work has been named the approved Strategic Hosting Provider by cloud company Sage Canada.
This move is expected to accelerate Cloud at Work’s expansion into Canada by supporting the cloud needs and demands of the Canadian customer base.
Cloud at Work, which offers secure and scalable technology, tracks the best in-class-cloud solutions which fit specific needs and improve business processes. It enables Sage customers using on-premises solutions (including Sage X3, Sage 100, and Sage 300) to reap the benefits of using Software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions, such as improved performance and efficiency.
Sage recently accredited Cloud at Work as a Sage X3 Strategic Hosting Provider, affirming the strength of the company’s SaaS and Sage application expertise. Cloud at Work also achieved SOC 2 certification recently, which assured customers of its services’ maximum data security and business continuity.
As part of the agreement, Cloud at Work is also set to build a new data centre based in Toronto, adding to two existing data centres currently based in the US. This new data centre based in Canada would give Canadian customers robust data security, assured application uptime, and enables customers to comply with any regulations which stipulate that their data must be housed within Canada.
Meeting Demand for Robust Hosting Environment
Director of Cloud and Hosting at Cloud at Work, Tyler Bower, said that the announcement recognises Cloud at Work’s “ hard-won reputation for providing Sage customers across the U.S. with a world-class cloud experience, and Sage’s trust in Cloud at Work’s ability to deliver the same performance in Canada.”
He added that Cloud at Work built the data centre in Toronto to demonstrate the company’s investment in and commitment to our Canadian customers, in meeting the demand for a robust, reliable, compliant hosting environment that unleashes the power of their business.”
Daniel Oh, Country Manager at Sage Canada expressed his hope that Canadian customers would welcome the new partnership. He noted that “With their SaaS knowledge and Sage product expertise, Cloud at Work’s new data centre will better serve our customers with Canadian data residency needs.
“We look forward to the Cloud at Work team continuing to support our Canadian customers and helping them adapt to change, smoothly migrating their Sage applications to the cloud, and giving them the agility needed to succeed in today’s challenging business environment.”
