Oracle Cloud regions in Montreal and Toronto now host NetSuite services for customers based in Canada, the first time the NetSuite service is running from data centers in this country.
All new NetSuite customers in Canada will be provisioned in the Toronto or Montreal cloud regions beginning immediately, the company said. Existing customers in Canada will be migrated in the coming months with no difference in NetSuite functionality.
“By making NetSuite available in the Oracle Cloud Montreal and Oracle Cloud Toronto Regions, we will be able to help Canada-based customers reduce cross-border data transfers, making it easier to comply with local laws, including the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA),” NetSuite said in a release. “In addition, we can help customers ensure the security and privacy of sensitive data classified by the Canadian government as Protected B information.
“In addition, with two separate data centers in Canada, we are able to provide robust disaster recovery capabilities that help customers comply with regulatory requirements around data residency.”
