General Availability: Brazil South region
05 June 2014
The Azure Brazil South region (located in São Paulo state) is generally available, starting today. Host your services in Brazil South with the same service-level agreement coverage that we offer in Azure regions worldwide. Brazilian customers get better performance through reduced latency, and can keep Customer Storage Data in-country by choosing Locally Redundant Storage (note that the default - and most secure - storage option remains Geographically Redundant Storage,which replicates data from Brazil South to our US South Central region). Visit the Azure website for detailed information on service availability and pricing. You can find more information about Brazil South general availability in the Microsoft Azure Blog.
