Microsoft opens new cloud data center region in Israel

Microsoft has a cloud infrastructure in 55 cloud regions in 21 countries. Microsoft has expanded that number to 56 by announcing its first cloud region in Israel. Microsoft’s new cloud data center region in Israel will be available on Azure in 2021. Office 365 will be available later. This new Israel Datacenter region helps Microsoft customers on-site to meet data residency requirements for data storage in Israel. Public sectors, large companies and small businesses in Israel will benefit from this expansion.

“When we talk to customers across EMEA, it is clear that the power of the cloud is critical to competitiveness,” said Michelle van der Bell, President of Microsoft Europe, the Middle East and Africa. “We have invested heavily in the region and with this announcement, the region planned in Israel will join the recently available EMEA market, including Germany, Norway, South Africa and Switzerland. Deploying Microsoft Azure and Office 365 from the Israel Data Center region is an important part of how public and business organizations can increase their technical strength. It is an important part of investment and engagement in startup countries. We have to accept it.”
