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.
