Bell and Microsoft announce deeper relationship with cloud services partnership


Bell is strengthening its business focus by announcing a deeper relationship with Microsoft.

Piggybacking on its partnership from May with Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute — which gives Microsoft customers secure access to the company’s Azure, Office 365 and Microsoft Dynamics CRM services — Bell and Microsoft are now offering an expanded suite of cloud services that give Compute (self-serve access to cloud storage), Backup and Disaster Recovery.

Bell apparently has the “largest national data centre capacity” in Canada with 28 locations. The goal is to help businesses be more secure and productive.

“We are seeing more businesses migrate to the cloud and are thrilled to expand our partnership with Bell to provide business customers access to more Microsoft Azure cloud services,” said Janet Kennedy, President of Microsoft Canada. “Bell’s reach, coverage and experience working with enterprise scale customers, together with Microsoft’s leading cloud solutions, will further Canadian business innovation and competitiveness.”
