Dynamics CRM Online Access from Multiple Countries


Q: (from Tom)

Does CRM allow for a database to be replicated/synchronized to multiple locations automatically, and then provide the end-user with a connection to the database location that would provide the best performance based on where the person is located?


A:

The short answer “Yes”. I did a Bing search on “CRM Online multi geo” and  found the following document:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dynamics365/customer-engagement/admin/multiple-online-instances-tenants

which does make reference to multi-regional instances being used to improve performance!

So following the link on how to add another region:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dynamics365/customer-engagement/admin/add-edit-multiregional-instances

It looks like the steps are pretty well documented. I then looked into the rest of the Office 365 family:
