Microsoft to establish its first datacenter region in Sweden
Published date: 24 November, 2020
Microsoft’s newest datacenter region will be among the most sustainable to date, as Microsoft will be partnering with Vattenfall around their 24/7 matching solution, which will track renewable energy consumption in the upcoming Swedish datacenters. The Microsoft Cloud delivered from datacenters in Sweden will enable Swedish businesses to empower employees, engage customers, transform products, and optimize operations — all through connected experiences and supported by advanced data privacy and security. Upcoming plans also include a skilling initiative for up to 150,000 Swedes. Microsoft’s community investments in Sweden total more than $1.25 million (U.S.) in partnership with 13 organizations to advance STEM programs focused on youth, skilling and culture. The new region will also deliver Availability Zones.
