OPEN 24/7 – Microsoft opens the «German Cloud»
The two data centers regions Berlin & Frankfurt have started their operations today. In addition to the possibility to store data geo-redundant, Microsoft offers local data storage – which significantly increases data security, data governance and business continuity for German companies. There are now several Azure Services & features available. Office 365, Dynamics 365 and Power Platform will follow soon.
Through the location of the data centers in Germany, all data are stored and processed in Germany too. But they are also connected to Microsoft’s global cloud networks at the same time. Microsoft is committed to compliance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) for the use of cloud services. That means your data is safe.
Also in terms of compliance, a significant improvement is achieved. The compliance standards of Microsoft Cloud Germany are regulated by various audits. Most of the audits are covered by existing audit regulations (includes ISO 27001/18 and SSAE16 / ISAE 3402). Through that, the German Cloud helps companies and organizations to fulfill their regulatory obligations by demonstrably adhering to German laws and international standards.
As a result, it can be said that the Microsoft Cloud Germany support German companies & organizations by providing the necessary security and the prescribed legal framework – which is crucial for economic success.
