Australian Microsoft Office 365 goes Live

Microsoft has today gone live with Office 365 and Dynamics CRM Online hosted in data centres located in Australia.

OzHosting.com is a Cloud Service Provider (CSP), one of only a few who were chosen to sell Office 365 outside of Telstra late last year.

The move continues the rollout of Microsoft cloud services based inside Australia, with Azure Australia going live last October 2014, but Office 365 and Dynamics CRM Online up until now being hosted out of Singapore.

Office 365 and Dynamics CRM Online will use the same infrastructure as its Azure public cloud. The service is housed in facilities in Sydney and Melbourne.

Microsoft announced the March time frame for local hosting back in December 2014.

Existing Office 365 customers with services hosted in its Asia Pacific region in Singapore will be automatically moved to Australia unless they opt-out. Customers will be given six weeks advance notice of their move date, which will occur out of business hours.

Existing CRM Online customers can contact Microsoft support to request a move.

Microsoft has also achieved IRAP security compliance, which means Office 365 is now approved for processing, storing and transmitting unclassified sensitive government data. The assessment covered Exchange Online, Sharepoint Online and Skype for Business, as well as Microsoft’s cloud and infrastructure operations and Australian data centre facilities.

Purchasing Office 365 from OzHosting.com will enable the Australian based Office 365 for its Customers and Resellers. Customers can visit – Microsoft Office 365
