Azure France Central and France South regions now generally available
Date updated: 23 March 2018
Azure regions in France Central and France South are now generally available. Built upon foundational principles of security, privacy, compliance, transparency and reliability, these new regions offer French organisations a complete cloud infrastructure and platform, as well as familiar productivity and business application tools – where customer data stays resident within France.
France will be one of the first countries in Europe to offer Azure Availability Zones, which provide additional protection against data centre failures (power, network, cooling). Microsoft designed Availability Zones to give customers great confidence in delivering services with an industry-best, financially backed, 99.99 per cent virtual machines uptime SLA when generally available.
