Microsoft Azure Australia Geo hits GA

Great news , the Azure Australia data centers have finally been released!

This wasn't a real surprise after Scott Guthrie released the news that the data centers would go live this week during the Cloud OS Day held by Microsoft.

The new data centers were officially launched during TechEd Sydney. The two new data centers, located in New South Wales and Victoria, increase the total number of Azure data centers as of today to 19 regions. The 20th data centre is expected to launch in India on a date yet to be confirmed.

As I was curious myself I had a look in the portal and can confirm the new data centers are available.

Australia Data Centers

Customers looking to leverage of the ExpressRoute to connect to the Australian data centers will unfortunately have to wait. Microsoft released the following information in their official press release.

"ExpressRoute via Equinix will be generally available later this calendar year. ExpressRoute via Telstra will be available in the New Year"

The full press release can be found on http://www.microsoft.com/en-au/news/auazure.aspx
