    Africa is planned, great. What about the Middle East? Amazon just beat you to it by announcing a data center in Bahrain starting 2019.

    Between hosting in West Europe (currently lowest latency azure dc for middle east) and Bahrain, enterprise clients - especially in the financial sector - will want to opt for something local when compliance & regulatory bodies get in on it.

    Azure Stack, you say? As of this post, it's only available in 3 middle eastern countries.
