Swiss soil

Microsoft announced 2 new datacenters in Switzerland by 2019

2 datacenters will be based in Geneva and Zurich to serve mainly the following sectors:
– NGO (Non-governmental organisation)
– Finance
– Health
– Public

Delivery time: Available in 2019

Services provided will include
– Microsoft Azure
– Office 365
– Dynamics 365

Swiss customers have been waiting for this announcement for quite some time as the need for datacenters on Swiss soil is paramount because of specific Swiss laws.

We can make the hypothesis that those Swiss datacenters will follow the same model as their German counterpart: an independent Swiss data trustee, governed under Swiss law, controlling physical and logical access to customer data.
