We are excited to announce that Microsoft 365 and its associated data residency offerings – Advanced Data Residency (ADR) and Multi-Geo capabilities – are now available for commercial customers in our new cloud region in Madrid, Spain.

 

With the availability of Microsoft 365 will now offer Multi-Geo and ADR add-ons to provide customers provisioned in Spain with greater control over the location of their cloud data.

 

Multi-Geo allows customers to configure in which geographies their Microsoft 365 user data is stored at rest, on a per-user basis and within a single tenant. Exchange Online, SharePoint, OneDrive, and Microsoft Teams are available for Multi-Geo configuration.

 

ADR provides guarantees that certain customer data will be stored at rest (in this case, in Spain) for several core online services, including Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, OneDrive, Microsoft TeamsCopilot for Microsoft 365, Exchange Online Protection (EOP), Office for the Web, Viva Connections, Viva Topics, and certain Purview products.

 

ADR and Multi-Geo include data residency commitments for Copilot for Microsoft 365 customers as of March 1, 2024. For information about data residency and Copilot for Microsoft 365, see Data Residency for Microsoft Copilot for Microsoft 365.

 

This new cloud region will provide artificial intelligence (AI) and other cloud services to contribute to the digital transformation and the development of the AI economy in Spain.

 

“We are committed to supporting Spain, by making investments, forging business partnerships, and creating programs that ensure broad access to cloud and AI services that empower organizations and individuals to develop and use technology in ways that will serve the public good. We do so by delivering a data center infrastructure that provides the most innovative cloud and AI services, offering the highest levels of reliability, security, privacy and data residency. Proof of this is the high-level certification within the National Security Scheme, obtained by the new cloud region.”  -- Alberto Granados, Country Manager, Microsoft Spain

 

This is the second new cloud region we have launched this year, continuing a series of datacenter launches that include Poland, Italy, and Mexico in the last 18 months.
