More details emerging of the Office 365 and CRM Online migration to Australian Datacenters

Phil Goldie from Microsoft sent the following information through to partners in Australia… I don’t see anything listed around Intune being migrated to Australian datacenters, maybe I need to poke around a bit and find out what is happening.

Dear Mark, In December 2014, we announced plans to start delivering Office 365 and Dynamics CRM Online from Australian datacentres by the end of March 2015. As these plans come to fruition, I wanted to give you an early sense of what these changes may mean for your business and help prepare you for customer enquiries. What do these changes mean for you? They represent a key opportunity to drive a new wave of innovation and expand your existing portfolio of offerings to customers in Australia. These services will be generally available (GA) by the end of March and we are dedicated to ensuring your business remains connected and up-to-date with the latest developments. What do these changes mean to your customers? From a ‘run-of-business’ perspective, the fundamentals won’t change. We’ll continue to deliver best-in-class solutions on world-class infrastructure, now housed here in Australia. In the meantime, we’ve outlined the processes we’ll be applying to Office 365 and Dynamics CRM Online customers upon GA. Office 365
