Microsoft Announces Public Preview Of Microsoft Azure Brazil Region

Microsoft recently announced the launch of public preview of Microsoft Azure Brazil Region. And the service will transition to general availability in the coming weeks. As Microsoft is looking to expand their service availability throughout the world, this expansion will provide a significant number of services in Brazil region and network availability that is on par with the industry in the local market.

With today’s public preview, customers in the region will experience better performance through reduced latency, and have the option to maintain three copies of their data in country through Locally Redundant Storage (LRS). However, if customers prefer Geo Redundant Storage (GRS), which is the default option, their data will be replicated to our US South Central region for increased durability.

The Microsoft Azure website has been updated to provide information on service availability and pricing in the Brazil South region.  During the preview period, Azure services including Compute, Storage, SQL Database, Web Sites and Data Transfer will be discounted.  All Azure services deployed from Brazil South during the preview period will be subject to the Supplemental Terms of Use for Microsoft Azure Previews, which means no service level agreements will be offered.  Support will be provided during the preview through our standard Azure support plans.
