All Azure infrastructure, platform and IoT services are now also available from German data centers. The locations operated by the data trustee T-Systems are Frankfurt am Main and Magdeburg.

For Big Data, Machine Learning and the Internet of Things

According to Microsoft, the main focus is on the topics of data protection and customer data control. Even strictly regulated industries can use it to operate public cloud solutions, such as big data, machine learning or the Internet of Things. In a necessary support case, Microsoft can only access data via a request to T-Systems. And these in turn only grant access under strict consideration of German data protection laws.

"Microsoft Cloud Germany is our answer to the growing demand for Microsoft cloud services in Germany and Europe. Azure Germany supports our customers in developing future-oriented solutions while at the same time complying with their compliance guidelines," said Sabine Bendiek, CEO of Microsoft Germany.

Integrated safety functions

Azure Germany offers many security functions such as multi-factor authentication, biometric scans, smart cards, data encryption according to SSL / TLS protocols, physical security measures and protection against natural disasters and power outages. A continuous data comparison takes place between the two German data centers to ensure reliability and data recovery in the event of a disaster. Data traffic is encrypted and secured using D-Trust certificates from Bundesdruckerei.
