Microsoft launches Azure Availability Zones in its Central India datacenter region
News Desk, News Nation 360 : Microsoft India announced the launch of Availability Zones in its Central India datacenter region, providing additional resilience options for customers’ cloud applications. Azure Availability Zones allow businesses to spread their infrastructure and applications across dispersed data centres, delivering additional protection and isolation from localized failures, which can range from mechanical or electrical issues, structure fires or flooding, or any unforeseen disaster. They also provide access to mission-critical applications, data, and services to every Azure customer to support their most important workloads and processes. Azure Availability Zones are physically and logically separated datacenters with their own independent power source, network, and cooling. If one becomes unavailable, the others ensure resiliency. They provide the scale, business continuity, and security businesses need to run their most important applications in the cloud. Rajiv Sodhi, Chief Operating Officer, Microsoft India stated that Microsoft’s cloud infrastructure comprises more than 60 announced datacenter regions around the world – more than any other cloud provider – and has been essential in connecting people, businesses, and governments while running mission-critical applications. They are continually upgrading the infrastructure in India to provide support for customers building and operating applications and workloads. From facilitating architectures for modern cloud applications to meeting data residency requirements, the new Azure Availability Zones in Central India will bring resilience to businesses, as they accelerate digital transformation. According to Abhijit Mazumder, VP & Chief Information Officer, Tata Consultancy Services Cloud-First is an important component of the TCS' Business 4.0 framework that guides our internal IT strategy, and which their Microsoft Business Unit uses extensively to further their customers' growth and transformation agenda. They believe this launch of a new Azure Central India Availability Zones from Microsoft will further enhance the resiliency and availability of mission-critical applications for them, as well as their clients in the region.
