Ex Libris, a global provider of cloud-based solutions for higher education serving thousands of customers in 90 countries, has announced the opening of a new data center in Toronto, Ontario as part of its ongoing focus on the Canadian market. The new data center will provide cloud-based library services that support data residency for Ex Libris customers across Canada.
The new data center in Toronto will allow Ex Libris customers in all Canadian provinces to comply with Canadian data privacy laws. The “ultra-modern” facilities comply with international standards such as ISO 27001 and SSAE16, as well as Canadian provincial regulations regarding personally identifiable information (PII).
“The decision to establish a data center in Toronto is a major component of our ongoing strategy of investing in the Canadian market as the adoption of Alma and Primo in Canada continues to grow,” said Eric Hines, president of Ex Libris North America. “With the new data center, our Canadian customers can provide their patrons with exceptional and cloud-based library, resource list, and mobile campus services that meet both provincial regulations and the highest international standards.”
