Microsoft announced nowadays that it’s increasing its cloud datacenter footprint to Switzerland and the United Arab Emirates. further, the enterprise is adding more datacenter regions in Germany, where it already has servers up and walking.

It’s a part of an ongoing geographic enlargement to higher serve customers of its Azure cloud platform, office365 productiveness suite, and Dynamics 365 business programs. Microsoft faces tough competition inside thecloud area, and ensuring that customers can get get right of entry to to compute sources in which they’re most handy is essential to staying competitive with Amazon net offerings, Google Cloud, and other firms.

The UAE datacenters may be located in Abu Dhabi and Dubai. They’ll mark the first Microsoft cloud areas to be had inside the middle East, that is a region that has historically been underserved by using the essentialcloud vendors. Launching datacenters in the direction of customers helps via offering them with a lowerlatency alternative for strolling their workloads.

In Switzerland, Microsoft plans to construct datacenters within the cantons of Geneva and Zurich. They’ll join a big fleet of eu infrastructure that’s already in area.

talking of Europe, Microsoft will also launch two new German cloud regionsthough the agency didn’t divulgein which inside the united states they’ll be positionedthose come along an present pair of cloud areas within the usa, with one key exception.

access to statistics in Microsoft’s present Germany areas is managed by means of a subsidiary of Deutsche Telekom, not by way of Microsoft itself. the new datacenters will now not follow that association.

On pinnacle of all this news, Microsoft introduced that its French datacenter regions at the moment arenormally to be had for use with Azure and office 365, with Dynamics 365 availability coming early next year. The tech titan didn’t provide predicted availability for the alternative datacenter areas that it introducednowadays.
