What regions my Office 365 Account is set up in

What regions my Office 365 Account is set up in


Does anyone know if Office 365 accounts are "sharded" globally? like Google Apps accounts or are they e.g. created on O365 server clusters in the region you are in?

I ask because I am in the UK working for an Aussie firm and the Office 365 purchase happened in Australia when the company didn't exist in the UK.

I've heard there is a way from the O365 portal to find out to what region i.e. the UK accounts reside in or where they are hosted?. Is there any way of telling this?

I know that Australia is served by Hong Kong and Singapore for Office 365.



RE: What regions my Office 365 Account is set up in

Although this is a question related to the cloud variant of MS Office, it's still more-so directly related to Office than just the Cloud in general. I suggest you'd be better off asking in the Office forum: forum68: Microsoft: Office. I know I've had no experience with Office 365 to date, so I can't speak to anything in that version.
