    • 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…

        planned  ·  Tony Lanera responded

        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.

        Stay tuned for more updates here https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/?v=17.14

      • 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.

        • 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…

                • SERVERS REQUIRED FOR USERS OF PAKISTAN

                  Please establish servers in Pakistan and Dubai as there are no nearby servers for Pakistan. The minimum latency that we get here in Pakistan is around 250ms which is too high for developing projects and playing online games from your servers.

                    • Why no datacenters in East-Central Europe?

                      New datacenters are planning in Europe in Norway and Switzerland - still in Western or West-Central. Is East-Central Europe black hole and not worth to invest ?

                        • Wonder if cognitive service supports handwriting recognition confidence

                          Does handwriting recognition API support word confidence attribute? Azure support in China told me global azure service could support that. But I tried the global azure API with a global account, I do not find any confidence values in results.

                                I suggest to verify if Azure regions in South Africa are still in "Coming soon" status.
