Microsoft to add new data centers in Europe and Middle East

Last year, the Redmond, Washington-based company announced it was building new data centers in South Africa, from which it planned to serve cloud customers in the Middle East by 2018. In addition, Microsoft Cloud services in France have reached general availability with Microsoft Office 365 today, and Dynamics 365 will follow in early 2019.

Microsoft has announced it is setting up two data centres in the UAE, in partnership with Etisalat. Microsoft also said that it plans to deliver its first datacenters in the United Arab Emirates, which will be located in Abu Dhabi and Dubai.

WANDisco has gained Microsoft One Commercial Partner Program co-sell status, which means it can now package its Fusion Live Data Platform with Microsoft's Azure cloud platform and tools.

"Many customers with particularly sensitive needs, for example in the public sector, prefer our German cloud offering".

Switzerland will get two new datacenters in Geneva and Zurich, which are primarily due to Microsoft's engagement with financial institutions in the region. Telekom serves as the trustee of data stored on the cloud to ensure data farmed out by companies complies with Germany data protection rules.

As fast as the network connections are between modern cloud data centers, customers will see much better performance from regions close to their customers or employees. "WANdisco Fusion enables continuous data replication for Microsoft Azure and HDInsight customers who also want to maintain on-premise consistency at scale". The new announcement expands Azure regions to 50 regions across the globe, which includes plans for 12 new regions.

Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) will open its first data centers in the Middle East next year.
