We are the go-to Modern Workplace Microsoft partner in South Africa for many years.

Existing customers that have their core customer data stored in an already existing datacenter geo are not impacted by the launch of a new datacenter geo. We introduce no unique capabilities, features or compliance certifications with the new datacenter geo. As a customer in any of those two geos, you will experience the same quality of service, performance and security controls as you did before. We offer existing customers listed in the table below an option to request early migration of their organization’s core customer data at rest to their new datacenter geo.
