Data security, and the location of your data in UK data centres, is important to you.
Office 365 and Azure are now delivered from UK data centres, a significant milestone, both for Microsoft and for Cloud services in the UK. On the 7th September 2016 Microsoft announced the general availability of Office 365 and Azure from multiple UK data centres.
I’ll confess I found that one of the notable aspects of the press release, which can be read here: Microsoft becomes first global provider to deliver complete cloud from UK data centres was the fact that the word ‘centre’ was spelt correctly. Bear with me on this.
This development, the UK data centres, not the spelling of centre, is that it is demonstrable of Microsoft’s commitment to not only data security and privacy, but also to the UK as a whole, not as a component of Europe or an extension of their global operations. There is obviously no need for me to quote the press release verbatim.
You can read more about data security and privacy here, or download our brochure for Office 365. Microsoft have consistently shown their commitment to data security, who knows, spelling might be an indication to commitment to the UK? Google and Amazon Web Services have yet to deliver on their promised UK data centres.
