Microsoft 365 customer data locations


Data 365 office logoHello everyone, you can find the locations of the data for Microsoft 365 users like yourself, me, and millions of others across the planet, from companies to schools.

The tables below shows where customer data is stored for Microsoft 365 services across all of Microsoft’s global cloud locations. Expand the location of your billing address country to find out where customer data for each service would be stored.

Customers should view tenant specific data location information in your Microsoft 365 admin center in Settings > Org settings > Organization profile tab > Data location.

If you requested to move to a new Geo, the data location information in the Microsoft 365 admin center may show only your new Geo even though some data may be stored temporarily in your prior Geo during the transition. New Microsoft 365 tenants are defaulted to Geo based on the country of the transaction associated with that tenant’s first subscription.
