For many companies in Germany, securing sensitive customer and company data is of paramount importance. With the launch of Microsoft Cloud Deutschland, it is now possible to store all these important and sensitive data in a cloud in Germany, with particularly strict data protection and compliance guidelines.
The data centers are located in Frankfurt am Main and Magdeburg. This ensures that all data remain in Germany. In addition, there are Cloud Control Centers in Magdeburg and Berlin to ensure the secure management of the data according to German guidelines.
Another new feature is the use of German data banks, which control and monitor all processes and tasks regarding the logical or physical access to data. Exclusively these data trustees has control over the access of customer data. Without consent from T-Systems International GmbH, Microsoft does not gain access.
Since September 2016, Microsoft Azure Germany is available through Microsoft Cloud Germany. In January 2017 the services Office 365 Germany and Power BI Deutschland were added.
So far, the applications Sales, Customer Service, Field Service and Project Service Automation are available in the Microsoft Deutschland Cloud. Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Operations and PowerApps will follow in the near future and will be supplemented by additional applications.
Microsoft offers a 30-day test environment with subsequent transfer to productive operation. The only downside is Microsoft Cloud Germany, resulting in additional costs of 25% compared to the standard cloud. For whom, however, securing the data is of the highest priority, the advantages are obvious.
