These Management Packs (MPs) take the form of updates from Microsoft, free software from 3rd party vendors, and paid-for solutions from 3rd party vendors.

Windows Azure now in Japan. Australia next?

February 26, 2014 Leave a comment

Toda Microsoft announced the general availability of Windows Azure Japan Geo, including Japan East and Japan West region:

“Today we are announcing the general availability of two new Windows Azure regions: Japan in the Tokyo metropolitan area (Saitama Prefecture) and Japan West (Osaka Prefecture). These regions were brought online to meet growing demand for Windows Azure services and help our customers satisfy performance needs. ”

It is expected that Microsoft will release the Australia region this year as well. I’ve heard rumours for the release on Q3, but there is no official communication yet.

Do you expect the cloud adoption to increase once it comes to your region?
