United Arab Emirates
This is the latest announcement as part of the Microsoft More for Brazil plan that supports inclusive growth through technology, sustainability and skilling programs, including the expansion of Microsoft’s cloud infrastructure in Brazil.
Microsoft 365 Multi-Geo enables customers to reduce their on-premises footprint and meet data residency obligations by allocating user data at rest to our available geo locations in the Microsoft 365 cloud, all within a single tenant.
