Microsoft to launch first cloud region in Israel

by Released

Microsoft has plans to launch its first cloud region in Israel through a local data center region.

This investment expands the Microsoft global cloud infrastructure to 56 cloud regions in 21 countries, with the new Israel region anticipated to be available starting with Microsoft Azure in 2021, with Office 365 to follow. The new Israel region will adhere to Microsoft’s trusted cloud principles and become part of one of the largest cloud infrastructures in the world, already serving more than a billion customers and 20 million businesses.

Azure is an ever-expanding set of cloud services that offers computing, networking, databases, analytics, and internet of things (IoT) services. The investment in a new Israel data center region will enable customers to use the most advanced technologies and adhere to data residency requirements to store data within Israel. Microsoft’s cloud services are also compliant with the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation
