Multi-Geo: Microsoft’s New Globally Reaching, Enterprise-Grade Data Location Controls

Multi-Geo: Microsoft’s New Globally Reaching, Enterprise-Grade Data Location Controls

At a time, when there are so many regulations from governments, corporate compliance and third-party regulators, Microsoft is guiding the path to more granular data location controls within organizations on a global scale with their Multi-Geo feature. This feature gives organizations with Office 365 the ability to put their end user’s Office 365 data in different Microsoft data centers across the world and setup unique permissions for each country, and it is now available for Exchange Online and OneDrive for Business. Future releases of Multi-Geo will include support for SharePoint Online and Office 365 Groups.

Multi-Geo Features

Multi-Geo is currently available to customers with a minimum of 5,000 users and requires the customer to license a minimum of 5% of their total user accounts with Multi-Geo at a service cost of $2/user/month. Currently, Multi-Geo is available widely, but not quite everywhere in the world yet. See below for the current Map of available Geos:

A Guide to Archiving Mail in Office 365 and Handling Terminated Users

With Exchange Server 2016 with Enterprise CAL or Exchange Online Plan 2 (included in Office 365 E3 and Office 365 E5 plans), Microsoft enables organizations to preserve individual or all mailbox items for discovery natively, keeping those items within the Exchange infrastructure. This approach is called, In-Place hold.

One significant benefit of hold - as opposed to separate, read-only storage - is that items are preserved within the Exchange infrastructure. This preserves more of the information, including metadata, and makes management easier for IT admins. Users benefit because they can manage their mailboxes using the familiar Outlook interface. From an IT-perspective, In-Place Hold eliminates the necessity and complexity of maintaining a separate infrastructure and potentially storage for Exchange items.
