Microsoft will be expanding its global data centre footprint by establishing its first data centre region in New Zealand. With the new addition, it will have 60 regions around the world with Microsoft Azure available in more than140 countries.

The aim is to fuel new growth that will accelerate digital transformation opportunities across New Zealand.

Microsoft will also continue to invest in new solutions that support both New Zealand and Microsoft’s sustainability goals. It will also add support for educational skilling programmes to increase future employability opportunities for the people of New Zealand.

“This significant investment in New Zealand’s digital infrastructure is a testament to the remarkable spirit of New Zealand’s innovation and reflects how we’re pushing the boundaries of what is possible as a nation,” said Vanessa Sorenson, General Manager of Microsoft New Zealand.

“I’m confident this investment will help accelerate our digital evolution,” she added.
