Multinational companies with offices around the world often have a need to store their employee data at-rest in specific regions, in order to meet their data residency requirements. Multi-Geo enables a single Office 365 tenant to span across multiple Office 365 datacenter geographies (geos), which gives you the ability to store Exchange data, at-rest, on a per-user basis, in your chosen geos. The two main consideration are the following:
- Multi-Geo is currently available to customers with a minimum of 2,500 Office 365 services subscriptions and will have to be directly requested to Microsoft.
- The only available Geos are: Australia, Asia Pacific, Canada, European Union, France, India, Japan, Korea, United Kingdom, and United States.
