Data Residency – This refers to the geographic location of an organization’s data information.  It is also the legal requirement imposed on data based in that particular region.  Some Government and industry regulations require customers to store business data locally and also mandated by our customer’s IT standards.

 Business Continuity – Regardless of a warehouse, service shop or production facility, your critical business processes can run locally in the facility even during lack of network consistency and cannot be relied upon for crucial business operations. On- premises deployments provide enhanced business continuity for scenarios that may require low latency integration with other on-premises systems.  It may even require deployments in regions where there are no options for a reliable network coverage infrastructure.  Local infrastructure issues can be addressed in some cases along with a financially backed SLA, with Azure Express Route.
