Two more Windows Azure data center regions have moved into production – in Japan this time.
There was a press release, but in Japanese. You can either learn Japanese or read the Bing Translator or Google Translate versions.
I updated the JSON meta data in the Azure Map project to indicate these data center regions into the “Production” mode, then re-ran my script to regenerate and upload the GeoJSON and TopoJSON maps. All data is in GitHub. For more info, see these two posts:
- Stupid Azure Trick #5 – Got a Penny? Run a Simple Web Site 100% on Blob Storage for a Month – Cost Analysis Provided – this uses the Azure Map as its example app
- Where’s Azure? Mapping Windows Azure 4 years after full General Availability. – this also offers historical context
