Azure Machine Learning has been released in our Southeast Asia (Singapore) and Western Europe (Amsterdam) datacenters.
Users in these regions can create workspaces locally in these datacenters. This helps them adhere to regulatory constraints, which require that all their data storage and computation resources be located within certain geographical boundaries outside the US. In addition, network latency is improved and bandwidth limitations are reduced for these Asian and European users.
