Microsoft Cloud for Sovereignty: A New Era in Government Innovation

Microsoft is paving the way for global government innovation with the introduction of the Microsoft Cloud for Sovereignty. This ground-breaking solution is a significant advancement at the intersection of global demand for innovation and evolving national policies regarding privacy and control.

What’s New: Public Preview and Upcoming Release

Today, we’re excited to announce the public preview of the Microsoft Cloud for Sovereignty. Moreover, we’re announcing our planned general availability for this December. This solution will empower governments to meet their compliance, security, and policy requirements while leveraging the cloud to deliver value to their citizens.

“This solution will enable governments to meet their compliance, security and policy requirements while harnessing the cloud to deliver value to their citizens.”

Addressing Government Limitations and Evolving Policies

Government customers have faced limitations with digital transformation due to the need for controls to meet specific national and regional requirements. Innovators within global governments have been seeking alternatives to the heavy capital expense and operational costs of a legacy approach. The Microsoft Cloud for Sovereignty is a response to this need, providing a secure avenue for modernizing their technology infrastructure and workflows.

GDPR and the Adoption of Hyperscale Cloud Computing

Evolving policy decisions such as the European Commission’s EU-U.S. Adequacy Decision under the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) now provide legal support for continued adoption of hyperscale cloud computing by government customers within the EU.

“We understand that sovereignty can mean different things for different scenarios, and as we work with customers and partners around the world the common thread is a need to determine for themselves where their data resides and how it’s protected.”

A Principled Approach to Digital Sovereignty

At Microsoft, we believe in transparency so that people and organizations can control their data and have meaningful choices in how it’s used. Our principled approach to digital sovereignty in the cloud builds on our principled approach to data privacy in the cloud. With all Microsoft Cloud solutions, customers benefit from industry-leading cybersecurity, along with the broadest compliance and more regions than any other cloud provider.

The Microsoft Cloud for Sovereignty is designed specifically for countries with jurisdictional requirements around sensitive data, ushering in a new era for governments worldwide.
