I am an ISV based in Cape Town. Last week i did a demo to potential customer of my software running on Azure in the states. The international lines out of south africa were cut in Egypt that morning and it would have been faster to retrive data by pigeon that get it via the net. Not much point having 99.5% uptime SLA when we cant rely on getting data in and out of our country. Please put a data centre in Africa. Preferably South Africa. Preferably Cape Town.Anonymous supported this idea ·
