A couple of new Windows Azure announcement were made today. As my colleague Bruce Kyle covered earlier, the Windows Azure team announced the availability of two new datacenters in the US: East US & West US. For what I assume are security purposes, the exact location of these data centers was not released. (I’m guessing they are east & west of the Mississippi River respectively.)
Speaking of security, the Windows Azure team also announced something that I’m sure will answer a lot of frequently asked questions I get when speaking about Azure with customers: A shiny new Windows Azure Trust Center on WindowsAzure.com!
One of the most frequent category of questions I get about Windows Azure relates to the general topic of security: Is my data safe technically? Physically (data center)? What regulations and certifications does Azure comply with? etc, etc. Now you can have all of those questions answered in one location!
