The following post is from Takeshi Numoto, Corporate Vice President, Cloud and Enterprise Marketing, Microsoft.
A few weeks ago, we announced that Microsoft Azure was in public preview in Brazil. Today, I am pleased to share that Microsoft Azure is now generally available in our Brazil South region.
In Brazil, and our other regions around the world, we’ve seen incredible demand for a global enterprise public cloud offering. Globally, more than 1,000 new customers join Azure every day, and revenue grew more than 150 percent in the last quarter. With Microsoft Azure now generally available in the new Brazil South region, even more customers can take advantage of the cloud.
Already, customers such as credit rating company Boa Vista Servicos, business management software provider Totvs, computing systems provider SiplanControl-M and e-commerce website platform Shop Delivery are benefiting from the power of the cloud. Along with our other customers in the region, they will also benefit from increased network redundancy, lower latency and increased durability.
This exciting milestone builds on our recent general availability announcements in both China and Japan, and reflects our rapid global expansion and incredible growth. With compute capacity doubling every six months and more than 8,000 customers signing up weekly, we are helping customers get the power of the cloud delivered by world-class cloud technologies, services and infrastructure. Today, we are excited to help our customers in Brazil harness that power so they can transform their businesses.
