Moving to a cloud service shouldn’t mean losing the ability to know what’s going on. With Office 365, it doesn’t. We aim
to be transparent in our operations so you can monitor the state of your service, track issues,
and have a historical view of availability.

Data location and access
We maintain multiple copies of your data, across datacenters, for redundancy, and we
share with you
where your data is located and will provide one-month advance notice if we expand the region where
your data is stored into a new country.
We have DevOps processes, which means 24/7 escalation to the actual development team
to resolve issues that cannot be resolved by operations alone.
We’re accountable to you
We conduct a thorough review of all service incidents, regardless of the magnitude of
the impact and we share the analysis if your organization is affected.
We commit to delivering at least 99.9% uptime with a financially backed guarantee.

We know that access to data in the cloud is a major concern. This means knowing that you can access your data and knowing
when someone else has accessed it. Read who can access your information and under what circumstances.
New capabilities like the Office 365 activity report and comprehensive logging provide even greater visibility into
actions taken on your content and greater control over access to your data in Office 365.
Partnership with Actiance and Globanet enables Office 365 to extend its archiving solution to cover a wide array of
third-party data sources, including social, IM, documents collaboration, verticals, and SMS/text messaging.
