Microsoft Azure now available from UK datacenters
Today, I’m proud that Microsoft is first global provider to deliver the complete cloud from datacenters in the UK. Microsoft Azure, along with Office 365, is now generally available from multiple UK datacenter locations providing data residency to help enable the digital transformation of our customers in industries such as banking, government, public sector and healthcare that require certain data to remain within the UK.
As one of the largest cloud operators in the world, we’ve invested billions in building a highly scalable, reliable, secure, and sustainable cloud infrastructure. With the introduction of new regions in the UK, Microsoft has now announced 34 Azure regions around the world with 28 generally available today – more than any other major cloud provider.
