Boston, MA, and Oxford, UK | October 12 2017 | Digital preservation specialist Preservica has today announced that its popular cloud hosted (SaaS) preservation and access software is now available on the AWS Canada (Central) region.

Preservica Cloud Edition, which is already used by a large community of businesses, archives, libraries and government institutions across the US and Europe, now provides Canadian organizations with an affordable and secure way to protect and provide access to long-term digital content using in-country cloud hosting and storage. The service also includes live webinar training, unlimited support, regular user group meetings and online user forums.

Digital transformation and the use of the cloud is a major focus for Canadian federal and provincial government organizations, and the new service will enable government institutions to meet mandates to preserve digital records in a useable form in the cloud for the benefit of present and future generations. Retaining data in country also enables closer adherence to privacy legislation such as the Canadian Federal Government’s Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) that applies to the collection, use and disclosure of personal information.

Mike Quinn, Preservica CEO adds “We are excited to be working with AWS to offer Canadian customers a cost-effective and scalable way of preserving valuable long-term digital content. The launch is part of our on-going global expansion and builds on the very successful adoption of Preservica Cloud Edition on AWS EU, US East and GovCloud (US) regions. It also underscores our expertise in providing cloud hosted digital preservation and our reputation as a trusted AWS Competency partner for Government and Education. We look forward to working closely with Canadian government and commercial organizations and welcoming them to our rapidly growing global user community.”
