Hi Microsoft Cloud and Azure Regions Zurich & Geneva!

28. Aug 2019

Microsoft Cloud Switzerland

Now the time has come: the Microsoft Cloud Switzerland with its Azure Regions Zurich and Geneva has officially gone live.
With two data center locations in Zurich and Geneva, the importance of Switzerland as a business location is emphasized and geo-redundancy is ensured at the same time. This step demonstrates the importance of local data storage for many Swiss companies.
A large number of Azure Services  and Office 365 from the Swiss Microsoft Cloud are planned to be offered. Among the first customers to use the Swiss Azure Cloud are SwissRE, UBS and Swisscom.
We are looking forward to welcoming another Hyperscaler in Switzerland and of course to many exciting joint projects! 🙂
A warm welcome!
