International hosting available for StoreSpace® with Microsoft Azure

C A Design Services is pleased to announce that StoreSpace®, the leading AutoCAD-based retail space planning software, can now be hosted internationally on the Microsoft Azure hosting platform.

Supporting the global expansion of Storespace, international retailers can now host their data and the StoreSpaceOnline database in one of 50 different locations around the world to comply with data localisation requirements. In addition, the current UK-based hosting is also available for retailers in compliance with GDPR regulations.

Phil Nelson, C A Design Information Services Manager confirms;

“We are delighted to include Microsoft Azure as a hosting option for our international retail clients who want to take advantage of the Worldwide presence and reliability of the Microsoft Azure platform. This also enables us to comply with the wishes of our European clients who do not wish their data to be hosted in the UK post-Brexit.”

Clients include a range of grocery, fashion, convenience retailers including Asda, AF Blakemore/Spar, Primark, Sainsburys, Shell, Well Pharmacy, Marks and Spencers, Longos and Waitrose.
