Windows Azure now spans east to west

Windows Azure originally covered the northwest and the southwest with existing data centers in USA  addition to covering  Europe and Southeast Asia with data centers in Europe and Asia. Now it has announced that it will cover clients in the US East as well. The location of data is not a critical issue in US as they are covered under uniform law as for as governmental access is concerned but it may affect latency for the users. In Europe it appears that each country has it covered by its own law, but a union-wide access may be in place before long.

This new coverage may require one or two data centers in the west. So far Microsoft is keeping mum about their location.
