Last October we released the preview of Azure Analysis Services, which is built on the proven analytics engine in Microsoft SQL Server Analysis Services. With Azure Analysis Services you can host semantic data models in the cloud. Users in your organization can then connect to your data models using tools like Excel, Power BI, and many others to create reports and perform ad-hoc data analysis.
We are excited to share with you that the preview of Azure Analysis Services is now available in 2 additional regions: Japan East and UK South. This means that Azure Analysis Services is now available in the following regions: Australia Southeast, Canada Central, Brazil South, Southeast Asia, North Europe, West Europe, West US, South Central US, North Central US, East US 2, West Central US, Japan East, and UK South.
