Microsoft has announced the general availability of Azure Availability Zones in the United Arab Emirates in Dubai. They are an important component of a comprehensive strategy aimed at business continuity and disaster recovery.

Azure Availability Zones will leverage the capabilities offered by Microsoft's enterprise data centres in Dubai, which began operations in June 2019. Among the entities using the Zones in the UAE are Emirates Group, Commercial Bank of Dubai and First Abu Dhabi Bank.

The launch of the Zones aims to improve the competitiveness of UAE businesses by providing vital business continuity and disaster recovery solutions.

Naim Yazbeck, General Manager, Microsoft UAE, said:

As businesses move forward amid increased industry upheavals and competition from market disrupters, competitiveness hinges on the ability to remain operational even as external issues destabilise markets and supply chains. Backups alone will not deliver such capabilities. Rapid recovery requires strategy-focused infrastructure and solutions to work effectively.
