Microsoft reportedly opening two new data centers in Germany

Germany is notoriously sensitive when it comes to privacy issues and the country has strict privacy laws.

It should be noted that since 2015 Microsoft has had a partnership with Deutsche Telekom, that enables it to offer German-based cloud services from two facilities in the cities of Magdeburg and Frankfurt.

Microsoft previously entered the cloud market in in Germany with the launch of the Microsoft Cloud Deutschland with Deutsche Telekom in late 2016. According to Reuters, citing reports in German publications WirtschaftsWoche and Handelsblatt, the cost of the two cloud data centers will run more than €100 million (about $123 million).

It is not clear at this stage whether these are bespoke Microsoft data centres, or new facilities opened in partnership with another party.

Demand for the German cloud had been weak, however, because of higher pricing and a lack of flexibility in lifting and shifting data, they added.

A Microsoft spokesman declined to comment on the reported investment but did say the USA company was happy to offer both German and global cloud services. "We give customers the choice" said the spokesperson. The new cloud project suggests "hardly anyone" at Microsoft still talks about the company's German cloud, wrote WiWo.
