Office 365 locally hosted in Australian Datacentres

Office 365 – Microsoft’s cloud productivity suite – is now locally hosted in Australian datacentres.  With Office 365, Dynamics CRM Online and Azure all delivered out of Australian datacentres, Microsoft Azure is Australia’s most complete cloud.

This means Satalyst can deliver to customers geo-redundant backup and faster performance for Azure, Office 365 and Dynamics CRM Online in a completely secure cloud environment.  Customers can see that their data is not only held, but also backed up in Australia.  This helps customers address data residency considerations, particularly in sectors such as healthcare, education, government and financial services.

Microsoft has completed the formal security assessment for the Australian Government’s Independent Registered Assessors Program (IRAP).  This assessment approves Office 365 for processing, storing and transmitting unclassified sensitive government data and covers Exchange Online, SharePoint Online and Skype for Business, as well as Microsoft’s cloud and infrastructure operations and Australian data centre facilities.  This news builds on Microsoft’s recent ISO 27018 announcement for Azure, Office 365, CRM Online and Intune. Microsoft’s comprehensive approach to global and local certifications ensures Azure is a cloud customers can trust – verified by third parties.
