  13. 13. Main CH DC Value Proposition vs e.g. EU • Local Data Residency, including contractual commitment that customer data at-rest stays within Switzerland • Latency • Informal measurements show considerable improvements over AMS/DUB • Please note there will be no Msft official numbers on latency
  14. 14. • With Azure, regional uplifts are standard and of course Switzerland also falls under this • Azure in CH North is on average 10-20% more expensive than Amsterdam, depending on workload – this is within the expected range • CH West has a further uplift – per the global standard for Azure disaster recovery sites Pricing
  15. 15. Managed Process for Onboarding • The Swiss DCs have the purpose to enable digital transformation primarily for Swiss clients • The Azure region in Switzerland sees a high demand from both Swiss and international clients • At first, we prioritize Swiss clients and partners with a requirement for local data residency • Clients and partners are onboarded through a managed process where eligibility is qualified • Don’t hold back, we’ve enabled access for dozens of additional clients after launch • It is foreseen to open the region for general access in the coming months
