Microsoft to add new Azure regions in Germany, Switzerland, UAE

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.

The centers will be located in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. 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.

Microsoft also announced plans to open other data centres simultaneously in Switzerland, France, and Germany. "Driven by strong customer demand for cloud computing, local datacenters were the logical next step in given the enormous opportunity that the cloud presents".
