• Microsoft ExpressRoute™

Your direct access to Microsoft Cloud Germany

Microsoft Cloud Germany is a platform for German companies to use Microsoft Cloud services and store customer data exclusively in Germany in accordance with German and European data protection guidelines. With the Microsoft Cloud Germany, Azure and Office 365 services can be used securely in Germany.

With these services, Microsoft supports German companies on their path to digital transformation. As a core application for the digital workplace, Office 365 enables IT departments to make mobile as well as networked applications and devices available to their users.
