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).
