The company is also expanding cloud options for it customers in Germany.

The corporation intends to be the first global cloud operator to introduce cloud regions in Switzerland in the cantons of Geneva and Zurich.

Microsoft has unveiled their plans to deliver an intelligent, trusted Microsoft Cloud from its very first datacenters located in the Middle East. Microsoft aims to use these datacenters to empower organizations, governments, and businesses to achieve more with what they have and truly take the next step towards bringing their workings into the digital age.


The centres will be located in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, and will offer Microsoft Cloud services, comprising Azure, Office 365 and Dynamics 365, to help organisations accelerate their digital transformation journeys, experts noted. The company is preparing to invest "hundreds of millions" of euros as part of the project, which will complement the company's existing European cloud offerings in Amsterdam and Dublin, wrote WiWo. The two new regions will provide enterprise-grade reliability, performance and business continuity combined with data residency within Germany and connectivity to Microsoft's global public cloud network.

Over the last three years, we've more than doubled the number of Azure regions available.

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. The new announcement expands Azure regions to 50 regions across the globe, which includes plans for 12 new regions. "Our work with HCL has been centered around building solutions that will drive significant value and help our customers transition to the cloud", said Michael Angiulo, CVP - Microsoft Corp.
