Microsoft is continuing to expand Azure's footprint with commitments to open new datacenter regions in Germany, Switzerland and the United Arab Emirates.

Microsoft has announced plans to build its first Middle East and North Africa data centres in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Microsoft is planning to offer Microsoft Azure, Office 365 and Dynamics 365 from new datacentre locations, in addition to the options now available in Germany.

According to a report from Reuters, Microsoft is opening two new data centers in Germany. Google has yet to tackle the Middle East, which has a relatively small market for cloud computing services at the moment but it is expected to grow at a 27 percent clip over the next few years.

"Microsoft has been present in the Middle East for more than two decades and is deeply invested in the region in many ways", says Sayed Hashish, Regional General Manager, Microsoft Gulf. Microsoft now claims the world's largest network of connected cloud services servicing more than 20 million businesses and 1 billion customers. "Driven by strong customer demand for cloud computing, local datacenters were the logical next step in given the enormous opportunity that the cloud presents".

Although Microsoft does not reveal earnings by region, previous year it reported that the Middle East and Africa is one of the fastest growing regions in the world for its cloud computing business. "Our ambition is for the Microsoft Cloud to form a strategic part of the backbone for regional economic development". Etisalat is also consulting on migration and managed services to see to the smooth transition of business customers to the cloud.
