Why Azure Germany?

We offer Azure services across Europe from several global datacenters, and Azure Germany is a differentiated option from these with separate accounts and pricing. It delivers our industry-leading services from German datacenters, with data residency in Germany, and strict data access and control measures provided through a unique data trustee model governed under German law. The primary differences between Azure Germany and other regions warrant the following considerations:

Data residency and sovereignty needs
Public sector or restricted industry requirements
Compliance requirements
Eligibility, with business in EU/EFTA and UK
Location of your organization and customers
Cost and budget considerations
