Requesting a move of the core data to the new Microsoft 365 (Office 365) Datacenter Switzerland

Microsoft Corporation has changed the policy for moving Microsoft 365 data to Swiss data centers:In contrast to what was communicated at the launch a year ago, Swiss Microsoft 365 customers are no longer automatically moved to Switzerland over time. Customers must now make a conscious decision to do so. The decision is urgent in order to be present at the first wave.

Please note: end of June 2020 is the deadline to opt-in for the Microsoft 365 move program to Swiss DCs. If eligible Swiss- and Liechtenstein-based companies used Microsoft 365 before its launch in the Swiss DCs in December 2019, such respective services customer data like e.g. Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, OneDrive for Business or Teams is most probably stored in European datacenters. Only clients who opted-in to the Microsoft 365 move program will have corresponding customer data at rest migrated to Swiss data residency over time.
