Azure is a multi-tenant hyperscale cloud platform that is available or announced to customers in 60+regions worldwide. Most Azure services enable customers to specify the Region where their Customer Data will be located. Microsoft may replicate Customer Data to other Regions within the same Geo for data resiliency but Microsoft will not replicate Customer Data outside the chosen Geo (e.g., United States). Microsoft makes Azure cloud environments available to customers: Azure public cloud service is available globally, Azure Government is available from 4 regions in the United States to US government agencies and their partners and Azure Germany provides services under a data trustee model, which ensures that Customer Data remains in Germany under the control of T-Systems International GmbH, a subsidiary of Deutsche Telecom, acting as the German data trustee.
