Norway flagMicrosoft has just announced plans to open two new data centers in Norway, one in the greater Stavanger region and the other in Oslo. Microsoft will deliver Azure, Office 365 and Dynamics 365 from new data center locations.

Azure availability is planned for late 2019 with Office 365 and Dynamics 365 to follow, according to company officials.

The new data centers in Norway expands Microsoft's existing investments in the country. In addition, the move is expected to enable greater innovation for oil and gas and other industries, as well as the public sector, officials stated. Now, customers will be able to take advantage of hybrid cloud options with Microsoft Azure Stack, available through service providers in the region.

Over the past three years, Microsoft has more than doubled the number of available Azure regions. Azure has more regions than any other cloud provider with 52 regions announced across the globe, officials stated.

"Over a billion customers around the world trust the intelligent Microsoft Cloud to provide a platform to help transform their businesses," said Jason Zander, executive vice president, Microsoft Azure, in a statement. "By delivering the Microsoft Cloud from new data center regions in Norway, organizations will be empowered through cloud-scale innovation while meeting their data residency, security and compliance needs."
