Enable multi-geo support for smaller tenants

We have a global company but only a small (around 350) licensed user base. We would dearly love to be able to leverage multi-geo functionality in order to be compliant with data sovereignty laws.

    Compliance is utmost critical and it does not simply depends on the number of users ! Please make Multi-geo commonly available for all tenants.

    Global company with 1500 users. Only about 75 in Germany. Due to GDPR now i need to make a whole separate AD server and O365 tenant for 75 people? This is crazy!

    Please lower the arbitrary limits. We have locations in EU and US and would love to use that feature

    Please add this feature for tenants who have less than the required 2500 users. As a multi-service technology company, this is something that a lot of our clients inquire about when we proceed with migrations.

    Our Office 365 deployment to European offices have been stuck for half a year because we only have 1400 users and is not eligible to enable multi-geo feature. MS please reduce the seat limit ASAP!!!!

    How is it that MS only support geo for companies of a certain size? startups are appearing everywhere and going global is easier than ever - especially because of cloud based platforms such as O365.

    Stop thinking like a big corporate and start getting your thinking into the borderless work that goes in in 2019.

    multi-geo should be a defacto in all accounts... period.

    This arbitrary limit is really limiting our migration to 365. Our US team in on 365, but the EU team is (rightly) hesitant to have their email hosted in the US given the latency and data governance issues. This feature has been out long enough that it should be globally available to tenants of all sizes, especially as it is an upcharge to use the feature.

    Remove 2500 seat limit - small organisations with global presence shouldn't be limited on GDPR compliance

  • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Why have a limit at all? Companies will be paying for it's use so there is no need for it!

  • Mark Gordon commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    We have MANY customer who cannot move to 365 currently because they do not have 5000 users and cannot move due to GDPR restrictions.

    We have a 400 hundred user multi-geo requirement across several continents. Mainly due to GDPR and local data residency legislation. The Company currently spends circa $20,000 per month on Azure services, and Microsoft is missing out on further revenue from us by effectively blocking access to O365 for our organisation.... This 5000 user limit is really not a good idea MS.

  • Mat commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Should be no limit for multi geo - yes you are losing licensing revenue by having 5000 limit.

    This is stopping us from migrating our US, CA and APAC mailboxes and adopting OneDrive, we have an EU tenant with 1200 users globally. it all about compliance and data residence and really causing problems here and costing money, we are even looking at upgrading On-Prem servers to Exchange 2016 which is a step backwards...

    It would also be nice for MS to offer the ability to move a tenant from one country to another even if there is a cost associated to this.

    It would be nice to see this lowered. Currently have a client of 2000 users and they are unable to deploy this. 5000 seems extremely high.
