New Multi-Geo Capabilities coming to SharePoint and OneDrive

During Jeff Teper’s announcements this morning at Microsoft Ignite, the new multi-geo capabilities are coming to OneDrive and Exchange with future roll out to SharePoint in the near future in Office365.

What will this mean to you?

Multi Geo will now allow organizations that have data throughout the world to be able to extend their single tenant to cover multiple geographic locations.

Customers will now be able to specify the geo using Azure AD that can apply to sites, users and at a document level. This will increase the capabilities for Admins to control where content is allowed to be access, shared and with whom throughout their tenant and user base.
