MONROE, La. -- CenturyLink Cloud continues to expand its global footprint. Today, CenturyLink is giving customers a new public cloud deployment option in Canada. Effective immediately, customers can deploy and manage virtual resources in a “CA3” cloud node in the CenturyLink Toronto “TR1” facility.

For businesses based in Canada, and those that do business in Canada, this new CenturyLink Cloud node offers several benefits: data sovereignty (for compliance), performance (host your apps close to your users) and the best aspects of having the CenturyLink Cloud available in a CenturyLink facility:

  • Scale. The CA3 node is built to handle the pent-up demand for cloud services in Canada.
  • Advanced connectivity. CenturyLink customers who already deploy resources in the TR1 location can now connect existing infrastructure to CenturyLink’s public cloud offering. Customers using nearby TR3, CenturyLink’s new Toronto data center opening later this year, will also be able to take advantage of this capability.
  • Self-service access to a robust set of cloud services. Users have Lots of options to build and manage enterprise cloud environments, including Hyperscale instances with 100% flash storage for Hadoop and NoSQL workloads.

    The new Toronto CA3 facility boast the full CenturyLink Cloud product catalog, including:

  • Compute. Deploy servers with custom CPU and RAM dimensions.
  • Storage. Block storage for app data. Customers can opt for our premium storage option that auto-replicates data from our Toronto facility to our Vancouver location. This provides geo-redundancy and preserves data sovereignty for mission-critical workloads.
  • Networking. Create and manage complex network topologies all via self-service - load balancers, VPNs, and firewalls.

    Live Digital Audio

    A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
