Huge news: Azure expanding to Australia!!!

I was so glad to hear today that Azure is expanding to Australia. This helps with two remaining areas of concern that I've heard from a variety of customers:

  • Compliance and data sovereignty (not wanting to store data outside Australia)
  • Latency (previously high latency even to our nearest external data centres)

With both these concerns now disappearing, it's time for more Australian customers to get involved with Azure if they've been resisting so far. 

Two Azure sub-regions are to be added. One for New South Wales and another for Victoria. In addition, data geo-replication between the sub-regions will also be available.
