Office 365 local datacenters now available in the United Kingdom

Today, reflecting Microsoft's deep and continued commitment to make Office 365 the most trusted cloud service for productivity, they are announcing the general availability of Office 365 from multiply local datacenters in the United Kingdom. Microsoft is pleased to be the first global cloud productivity provider offering U.K. data residency for core customer data at rest.

Since October 2014, Microsoft have rapidly expanded their global cloud footprint and opened new datacenter regions in Japan, Australia, India, Canada and now the U.K. In addition to the highly secure productivity capabilities already enjoyed by Office 365 customers all over the world, these new data center regions add in-region data residency, failover and disaster recovery to help effectively address the legal, regulatory and compliance needs of customers in industries like banking, government, public sector and healthcare.
