Update zu den Microsoft Datacentern in der Schweiz (April 2019)

Microsoft baut weltweit eine Vielzahl neuer Datacenter. Auch für die Schweiz hat Microsoft für die zweite Jahreshälfte zwei Datacenter angekündigt. Eines in Zürich, das andere in Genf. Über die letzten Monate wurden immer wieder Neuigkeiten publiziert. Diese fasse ich hier zusammen und ergänze sie mit den Ankündigungen der Tech Summit Switzerland, welche am 3. und 4. April in Bern stattgefunden hat.

Für wen sind die Schweizer Datacenter von Micorosft interessant?
Profitieren werden vorallem Unternehmen mit regualtorischen Einschränkungen, wie das Finanz- oder Gesundheitswesen, der öffentliche Sektor oder Non-Profit Organisationen. Die Vorteile sind eine vollständige Integration in die restlichen Microsoft Services, die lokale Datenhaltung in der Schweiz sowie eine geringe Latenz vom Standort Schweiz aus.
