    • Why no datacenters in Middle East and Africa?

      Hi Microsoft,
      I can’t help thinking that Microsoft is pursuing some sort of imperialist western agenda with the deployment of its worldwide Azure Datacenters! As an independent software developer based here in Dubai with clients right across Africa, The Middle East and the Sub-continent we currently have the choice of hosting in Western Europe (Amsterdam) which is between 6500km and 8000km away from our clients, or South East Asia (Singapore) 5000 to 11000kms away.
      Guys it is time to realize that there is 2/5's of the world’s population nearby - let’s see something proactive in terms of datacenter deployment, and…

        Microsoft is expanding on its existing investments in Africa by delivering Microsoft Cloud Services including Microsoft Azure, Office 365 and Dynamics 365 directly from Datacenters located in Johannesburg and Cape Town South Africa. Initial availability is expected in 2018.

      • Create this new Azure region : Switzerland

        Switzerland is a small country but it is one of the world’s strongest economies. Many swiss companies can't make the move to Azure because they do need to have theirs data inside the country.
        Please create this new Azure region : Switzerland !
        Thanks.

          • provide Azure availibility in Gibraltar

            Please provide Azure services availability in Gibraltar. Gibraltar as financial center does high value, a lot of big UK gaming companies are settled her. For me as a developer based here is hard to promote Microsoft solutions to potential clients while Microsoft solutions are not supported here. Many companies her are using Oracle solutions, it will make sense to catch the train here. It is the small country with big business here. It is bad, that MS is not supporting UK overseas territory, especially that one, that is member of EU as Special member state territory.

            • Azure not available in Malawi

              Malawi is not listed among countries in the Azure signup. It is therefore impossible to set up and/or use any Azure services. Please can we be added? We are on boarding as a Microsoft partner in a program where we expect to have massive adoption of Azure services

              • Azure plataform, small business, brazilian location,

                Dear MS, i'm simple enchanted with the azure plataform. As a 3 world businessman, i try to look forward and see big and small business sharing the same technology, on next years. can we think as fabien (open erp) and look forward? with all visual suít and etc... why we cant focus on small business, whoio needs technology too? i guarantee that, Microsoft will sell more Windows and office licenses than ever. Maybe small business ppl arent ready now, but they shall be on future, when a lot of developers will come with a lot of options for us............... idk,maybe…

                    • sync Azure availability zones and regional pairs

                      We run an application with active-active in EastUS and WestUS2.
                      A full switch from one Region to another is possible.
                      EastUS was selected as it offers more features compared to EastUs2, e.g. VMscaleset encryption, Application Insights.
                      Would be great if EastUS and WestUS2 could be used also as regional pairs - as currently only EastUS2 is offered as partner for WestUS2 - to benefit from the not simultanious updates.

                      • Valid Training Center for Microsoft Azure and Solutions in Sierra Leone

                        Hello Microsoft;
                        With increasing opening of new startups and businesses; it would be ideal if you will be considering Sierra Leone in offering more services and training facilities and opportunities.
                        Sierra Leone is faced with lot of power shortages and outage, so a lot of business and organizations may seek to move their IT platforms to the cloud.

                        • Register / Signup Microsoft Azure for Myanmar Region

                          Hi Team,

                          I am from Myanmar country and currently Microsoft Azure did not official launch in Myanmar. Hence i cannot register / signup using Myanmar Phone Number, Address and Debit/Credit Card.
                          Due to limitation of Microsoft Azure, we need to choose other Cloud Service instead. Microsoft should consider Myanmar Region since Myanmar Country is quite open since past a few years back.

                                        • Gaming Servers Required in Pakistan

                                          Gaming servers are required in Pakistan as there are no servers available in Pakistan and as the increase in users in the gaming community of Pakistan separate servers for this country are required as on the nearby servers the minimum ping we get is around 150ms which is not suitable for playing online games so kindly do the same as soon as possible.

                                          Thanks
