Microsoft to deliver cloud services from new regional datacenters

"We have seen in the past couple of years that a lot of customers have increasingly put their trust in the Microsoft Cloud services, and once we crossed a certain threshold, we knew that we needed to have a data centre here that could help support their needs".

This new cloud offering will complement the existing options now available for customers which include global services delivered from outside of Germany and the Microsoft Cloud Germany, which offers a unique cloud model that is physically and logically separated from Microsoft's global infrastructure and managed under a data trustee.

They'll mark the first Microsoft cloud regions available in the Middle East, which is a region that has historically been underserved by the major cloud providers.


"Driven by strong customer demand for cloud computing, local datacenters were the logical next step given the enormous opportunity that the cloud presents", says Sayed Hashish, regional general manager, Microsoft Gulf.

Additionally, Microsoft said it would open new cloud data centers in Germany to better serve customers in the country, confirming earlier reports by German news outlets WirtschaftsWoche and Handelsblatt. We intend to be the first global cloud operator to introduce cloud regions in Switzerland, which will be in the cantons of Geneva and Zurich.

"What our customers appreciate is choice", said Microsoft Azure's head of global infrastructure Tom Keane in an interview. Microsoft is planning to offer Microsoft Azure, Office 365 and Dynamics 365 from new datacentre locations, in addition to the options now available in Germany. We have long-standing expertise and deep local relationships in the Middle East. As of today, Azure has more regions than any other cloud provider. FusionFabric.cloud completely opens our software up to third parties, and our broad solution set is unparalleled, enabling us to revolutionize the traditional development model and pave the way for future generations to embrace a collaborative ecosystem approach.
