Amazon and Microsoft are entering Canadian cloud market

Amazon has announced its plans to enter the Canadian market in 2016. Amazon is not the only public cloud vendor going after Canadian government clients and companies looking to avoid data sovereignty concerns.

In June 2015, Microsoft announced its plans to enter the Canadian business market in 2016.  Microsoft's plans include two Canadian Azure data centers. Both data centers will be in eastern Canada, with plans to launch in Toronto, Ontario and Quebec City, Quebec.
