Reliable cloud infrastructure is the foundation of delivering global cloud services. With 24 regions around the world – more than AWS and Google combined – Microsoft Azure is delivering hyper-scale cloud to its customers. Today, Microsoft announced general availability of three regions — Central India in Pune South India in Chennai and West India in Mumbai.
Microsoft is the first hyper-scale public cloud provider in India. The new region will provide local customers with data residency and replication in multiple regions for backup and recovery, and the option of a private connection to the cloud. Azure is immediately available in these regions, with Office 365 services coming in October, and Dynamics CRM to follow in the first half of 2016.
