S4B Online Multi-Region User Tenants RRS feed

  • Question

  • My customer with a USA hosted Tenant has acquired a European company and would like to also have them use S4B Online. Around Sept 16 there was an announcement that this would soon be possible. 

    So is it possible or when will it be possible to have users distributed across multiple Office 365 Data Centres ? (to provide much better media quality by reduced latency)

  • Hi Keith,

    This is coming to Office365 but is not here yet, for SfB you can have regionally hosted meetings which will allow you to have a single office 365 tenant and as an admin home users in different regional datacentres, so you home users as local as possible to office location to reduce the latency on media traffic. You can also take advantage or Microsoft backbone between their DCs to optimize traffic.

    I wrote a blog post on this which may be of interest.

  • Hi Keith,

    Welcome to our forum.

    we access office 365 from a specific office 365 data center, not from multiple office 365 data center. However, the data will be replicated to another data center or high availability:

  • Hi Jim,  

    I am not referring to the data replication but rather the user homing. Example US Comppany with one office in Paris. It would be dumb if the signaling and media had to travel all the way to the US. Is there currently a way to assign users to different regions (like pools).

  • Hi Martin, Thanks! Do we need any additional license for RHM, as for Multi-geo there is a separate license
