Microsoft UAE New Announcement :

Microsoft UAE has announced the general availability of Azure Availability Zones which will be delivered through its data centres in Dubai.

This investment will enhance the competitiveness of the business in UAE by reinforcing Microsoft’s commitment not only to the UAE government and business community but also to the entire UAE population.

General Manager of Microsoft UAE :

Naim Yazbeck, General Manager of Microsoft UAE said “With the advent of the always-on economy, uptime and continuous access to critical data, applications, and workloads have become front-of-mind concerns for the region’s technology stakeholders and as businesses move forward amid increased industry upheavals and competition from market disrupters, competitiveness hinges on the ability to remain operational even as external issues destabilize markets and supply chains. Backups alone will not deliver such capabilities. Rapid recovery requires strategy-focused infrastructure and solutions to work effectively. That is what Azure Availability Zones delivers.”

The Azure Availability Zones :

The Azure Availability Zones are a crucial building block of comprehensive business continuity and disaster recovery strategy.

This is designed to guarantee resilience and grant availability of business-critical applications and data in times of crisis, through advanced architecture and built-in, end-to-end security.

The launch of Azure Availability Zones also signifies the eagerness of Microsoft’s UAE cloud locations to form the backbone of organizations futureproofing programs, undertaken in the wake of the Covid pandemic crisis.

Microsoft UAE Azure Availability Zones :

Azure Availability Zones are built on the capabilities and benefits offered through Microsoft’s enterprise-grade data centres in Dubai, which began operations in June 2019 and the facilities’ services have empowered several organisations to further increase their capacities and reimagine their operations.

Microsoft UAE Azure Availability Zones in the UAE are put to use by Emirates Group, Commercial Bank of Dubai, Mashreq Bank, and First Abu Dhabi Bank.

The intelligent as well as trusted, versatile Microsoft Cloud has been the foundation of digital transformation for regional innovators. Business agility, cost rationalization, productivity, security, governance, and compliance are some of the benefits that have been experienced by regional cloud consumers. 

The new availability zones will enhance the way usage of Microsoft Cloud, further offering a greater level of data security, resilience, and flexibility.
