Microsoft has announced it is to open new data centres in Switzerland and Dubai in 2019, helping businesses ‘achieve more while recognizing the unprecedented opportunity for digital transformation in the region’.

The company’s new data centres are set to provide businesses, governments and organisations with a new level of cloud-based services as Microsoft says it believes these technologies would be the key driver of economic development in the near future.


Samer Abu-Ltaif, President of Microsoft Middle East and Africa added: “We will continue to work with governments and organizations across the region to accelerate their digital transformation, and I am excited about the role that our new data centres will play in this transformation.”

And lead among the companies working with the software giant in its new ventures was Penta, as Chief Operating Officer Hossein Fezzazi explains:
