Microsoft Increases The Size Of Its UK Azure Regions By 50%
Microsoft has more than doubled the size of its Azure regions in the UK with the addition of Availability Zones.
The company has made it clear that the expansion will further help UK organisations continue their move to the cloud as part of their digital transformation journeys, and builds on Microsoft’s presence in the UK.
“The Microsoft cloud has become a core component to the strategies of thousands of UK organisations since the launch of services from our UK cloud regions in 2016,” said Cindy Rose, Chief Executive of Microsoft UK.
“We continue to make significant investments to ensure that our customers are able accelerate their digital transformation journeys and their adoption of cloud services.
“By doubling our UK regions and increasing our compute capacity by more than 1,500%, our customers can have the confidence they can access any Azure services available in UK regions whenever they want.
“The launch of Availability Zones takes Azure to a new level in the UK by offering customers increased reliability, business continuity and peace of mind for their data and services.”
It has been highlighted that the move will most likely appeal to public sector organisations interested in hosting potentially sensitive information securely and locally.
Currently, Microsoft’s Azure cloud platform is used by the Department for Education, HM Revenue and Customs, and NHS Blood and Transplant, as well as numerous councils across the country.
Microsoft also announced the launch of its Azure Availability Zones in UK South, which will offer its customers access to separate, physical locations within an Azure region.
The company also unveiled the availability of Azure DevOps in the UK South region, which is a service that lets users create software, using tools that Microsoft has invested in and developed.
“In the previous month alone, more than 100,000 internal Microsoft users and millions of customers have used these services to build their own products and release them to the cloud and to their on-premise data centres,” noted the company.
