I was just reading about CentriLogic's new cloud hosting services.
They store your data across data centers in Rochester NY
, Buffalo NY
, Toronto ON

you can deploy your data across United States, European, Hong Kong and Singapore, and Japan edge locations.

- Czech Republic
- New Zealand
- Hong Kong
- United States
- Russian Federation
- South Africa
