Microsoft Plans Two Data Centers in Middle East

Microsoft announced its plans to set up two data centers in Middle East to be located at Abu Dhabi and Dubai. These data centers will deliver the Microsoft Cloud, comprising Azure, Office 365 and Dynamics 365.

Sayed Hashish, Regional General Manager at Microsoft Gulf, said, “Driven by strong customer demand for cloud computing, local datacenters were the logical next step given the enormous opportunity that the cloud presents. In areas like digital transformation, and the development of new intelligent services, our ambition is for the Microsoft Cloud to form a strategic part of the backbone for regional economic development.”

Etisalat Digital will be collaborating closely with Microsoft as a Cloud Solutions Provider, offering integrated connectivity with Microsoft ExpressRoute as well as private cloud services using Azure Stack. The UAE-based telco is also providing consulting, migration and managed services to ensure the transition of business customers to the cloud.
