Microsoft has announced plans to open cloud datacenters/regions in Mexico and Spain some time in the future. These new areas will be serving up Azure, O365, Dynamics 365 and Power Platform.
Enterprise Pick No. 2 of the week: Mover file migration tool is now available to O365/M365 users

Beer pick of the week: Equilibrium Super Fractal Koru Set
It’s NYC Beer Week. So many local beers, so little time. Equilibrium’s Super Fractal Koru Set is named after the Koru, a New Zealand Maori term for a spiral shape that constantly evolves to symbolize new life and growth and resembles a fractal set. This is a tripel IPA (10%). Equilibrium, based in Middletown, NY, was formed by a bunch of former chemists. So this all makes sense.
