While the company still plans to offer specialized services from its German cloud, demand from both companies and public authorities for services from Microsoft Cloud Deutschland has been low. All told, Microsoft says it will be launching its first data centers in Switzerland and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) while also expanding its cloud offering in Germany.

The cloud-computing sites are expected to be available by 2019, the Redmond, Washington-based company said in an emailed statement on Wednesday. The data centers would be Microsoft's first in the region, making the USA tech giant the latest cloud service provider to invest in the digital infrastructure in the Arab world.

Microsoft has a long history of collaborating with customers to navigate evolving business needs and has developed strategies to help customers prepare for the new European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). We have long-standing expertise and deep local relationships in the Middle East.

Microsoft also plans to open two cloud sites in Switzerland, in the Geneva and Zurich regions, and will add two new locations in Germany.




As more data retention laws are signed, having local data centers strategically located throughout the world will become a strength of Microsoft's cloud services.

Investments into the UAE data centres expand on Microsoft's presence in the region for more than 20 years.

A Microsoft spokesman declined to comment on the reported investment but did say the USA company was happy to offer both German and global cloud services. "Our work with HCL has been centered around building solutions that will drive significant value and help our customers transition to the cloud", said Michael Angiulo, CVP - Microsoft Corp.
