Tom Keane, Microsoft, general manager of Microsoft Azure Global and corporate vice president, has been at the forefront of advocating for expanding Azure’s availability zones. The Zones are located within an Azure region, and it safeguards customers’ data from datacenter-level failures. The company has also revealed the expansion of Availability Zones in the West US and North Europe.
This will enable clients in those regions to build and have applications with low–latency synchronous replication. In addition, clients will create comprehensive business continuity with data residency in any coverage area. According to Tom Keane, Microsoft’s strategy ensures clients have broad options to enhance business continuity. With Availability Zones, customers can run and build applications with high resilience capabilities.
This, with Azure as the leading company with more global regions. Azure’s footprint has 54 regions with over 100 data centers to serve clients in 140 countries. In addition to the expansion of Availability Zones, Tom Keane recalls, the company has expanded zone redundant services.
The software developer and cloud services engineer Tom Keane says that these include services like VPN Gateway, Event Hubs, ExpressRoute, and Azure SQL Database in the Azure areas (Twitter).
Tom Keane once said that even if you are a mission owner or building tools to support them, you will access cloud capabilities on any fabric you choose. It will be easy to launch with the permission of your choice. Azure offers a 99.99% uptime service level agreement (SLA) when the virtual machine in two or more Availability Zones is running. Tom Keane finally adds that Azure clients can protect against infrastructure disruptions by connecting at least three distinct data centers in a region and considering risk factors.
