Microsoft has announced that Azure Analysis Services is now available in North Europe, and the Western US. This ultimately means that Analysis Service is now available in five regions across the globe.
According to Josh Caplan, a Senior Program Manager, Azure Analysis is a preview service where you can host semantic data. The feature works by "connecting data models using tools like Excel, Power BI and many others to create reports and perform ad-hoc data analysis." Today's announcement brings availability to a total of five regions, including North Europe, West Europe, West US, South Central US and West Central US.
If you're already set up with Azure Analysis Service, and you reside in these regions, you can create your first data model now. As always, though, please let us know what you think of this latest Azure news by dropping us a comment below.
