Where will your Dynamics 365 cloud data be physically stored?

Posted on: February 20, 2020 | By: Leo Weldon | Microsoft Dynamics AX/365

Lucky you because you just stumbled upon part two of our mini-series on data storage within the cloud. You might have missed out on part one, but you can catch up on how data storage works with cloud deployment here. In this blog I will talk about where your cloud data will be physically stored.

As a Dynamics 365 user, your data will be stored at one of Microsoft’s large data centers. These centers are located around the world. Microsoft allows you to determine exactly where your data will be stored based on information about which services you are using and where your business is located. Furthermore, Microsoft must let your business know at least one month in advance if they plan to expand or relocate your data to a different data center.

Data Center Locations

If your business is in the United States and you use Dynamics 365, your data will be at one of the following data centers:

· East US (Virginia)

· East US 2 (Virginia)

· North Central US (Illinois)

· Central US (Iowa)

· South Central US (Texas)

· West Central US (Utah)

· West US (California)

· West US 2 (Washington)

If your business is in Europe and you use Dynamics 365, your data will be at one of the following data centers:

· North Europe (Ireland)

· West Europe (Netherlands) Ireland or the Netherlands.

Microsoft’s data centers are regulated by EU data protection law.

Check back later for the final part of this blog series, which answers the questions about how safe your data in the cloud really is.
