Because we’re committed to delivering consistent, high performance and mission-ready solutions to Azure Government customers, we’re continually optimizing our cloud datacenter infrastructure to be more efficient and cost-effective. As part of this optimization, we’ll be retiring the Azure US Gov Iowa region on April 30, 2020, and you’ll need to migrate your resources to an alternative region to avoid service disruption. As with all changes of this type, we’re providing 12 months’ notice so you have adequate time to adjust.
We operate three additional government regions, all of which provide similar or enhanced capabilities to the US Gov Iowa region, including:
 · Access to a more comprehensive and growing portfolio of Azure services.
 · Identical comprehensive compliance and resiliency options.
 · High performance through our dedicated low-latency network.
Required action
Take these steps by April 30, 2020, to avoid disruptions to your applications and enjoy quality and feature updates:
 1. Choose from three alternate US Gov regions, located in Virginia, Texas and Arizona, for your Azure resources. We recommend the US Gov Virginia region, as it has the greatest number of available Azure services.
 2. Follow this comprehensive guidance to migrate to that region.
We encourage you to review the migration guidance at your earliest convenience and plan accordingly.

Other updates:

Dual Stack IPv4/IPv6 connectivity with full IPv6 support for Virtual Networks is now available. This lets you bring your private IPv6 space into Azure and enables connectivity over IPv6 within your Virtual Networks. With this, you’re able to address IPv4 depletion, meet regulatory requirements, and expand into the growing mobile and IoT markets with your Azure-based applications.
Dual stack Virtual Network also:
 · Builds on long-established Azure VM-to-internet IPv6 connectivity.
 · Enables fully IPv6 architectures to be hosted in Azure with IPv6 connectivity between virtual machines (VMs) in a virtual network, using IPv6 network security group rules, IPv6 user-defined routes, and load balancing across VMs. 
 · Allows Azure you to define your own IPv6 address space to meet the needs of your applications or customers.
 · Provides “dual stack upgrade-in-place” where you can add IPv6 connectivity to your existing applications without re-deploying.
 · Provides maximum service deployment flexibility, so a single service instance can connect with both IPv4 and IPv6-capable internet clients.
Dual Stack connectivity will preview globally in all Azure Public cloud regions—try it out in a region that’s convenient for you.
IPv6 is used by:
 · Government or customers in highly regulated industries.
 · Internet-of-Things (IoT) applications that use the enormous number of IPv6 addresses available.
 · Customers who want native (not translated) connectivity from their Azure applications to IPv6 mobile devices. 
 · Customers who deploy service instances in Azure with dedicated per customer connectivity.
 · Customers moving to the cloud (or hybrid) struggling with the exhaustion of their IPv4 space and the inability or expense of acquiring more IPv4.

Other updates:

We're excited to announce a new B-series VM size, B1ls, which has the smallest memory and lowest cost among Azure VM instances. This offering is in response to customers who were looking for entry-level offerings. B1ls has 512 MiB of memory and 1 vCPU, and it costs only $0.0052 (US East) per hour.
Target workloads
B1ls is best for small web servers, small databases, and development and test environments. It offers a cost-effective way to deploy workloads that don't need the full performance of the CPU continuously and burst in their performance.

B1ls is available only on Linux for the best customer experience. Windows is not supported because the minimum recommended memory for the Windows OS is larger than what B1ls offers.

Advanced Threat Protection for Azure Storage is now available. It provides an additional layer of security intelligence that detects unusual and potentially harmful attempts to access or exploit storage accounts.
This layer of protection allows you to address concerns about potential threats to your storage accounts, without needing to be an expert in security. Enabling it is quick and simple. Sign up in the Azure portal, or with standard Azure APIs (REST/PowerShell) for specific storage accounts or subscriptions. Once enabled, security alerts are triggered when suspicious activity occurs, and you can view them listed in Azure Security Center. Security alerts provide details of suspicious activity and recommends actions to take to investigate and mitigate the potential threat.


The identity experience framework orchestration platform of Azure Active Directory B2C (Azure AD B2C) is now available. This means that you can create your own user journeys and integrate with multiple identity providers and data sources, such as a customer relationship management (CRM) solution or loyalty system, to deliver first-class experiences. Use Azure AD B2C as a universal platform for gathering data feeds and applying that data to the user experience in your consumer applications to improve acquisition and retention. Azure AD B2C also offers several built-in templates for common user flows.


Azure Availability Zones, a high-availability solution for mission-critical applications, is now generally available in UK South.
Availability Zones are physically separate locations within an Azure region. Each Availability Zone consists of one or more datacenters equipped with independent power, cooling, and networking. With the introduction of Availability Zones, we now offer a service-level agreement (SLA) of 99.99% for uptime of virtual machines.
