Hi Experts,

Looking for the Microsoft Azure Savvy in you. I've had a customer asking specifically where the offsite backup goes.

The azure backup is set to EU West. Do we know what specific country in West EU as the company in question has been told that their data cannot leave the UK.

Thanks

Hi there,

As far as I know, when first launched, the datacentres used by the UKwere located in Ireland and either Belgium or the Netherlands (one would mirror to the other). > https://azure.microsoft.com/en-gb/regions/

Microsoft have since launched 3 UK datacentres in London, Durham and Cardiff in September of this year. > http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-37285667

How you would move from one to the other I do not know, perhaps raise a support ticket with Microsoft?

Thank you. I have since gotten in touch with a azure engineer who told me that later this year they should have the availability to lock it down to just the UK. In case anyone else was wondering.
