Company officials are predicting that Microsoft will be building 50 to 100 new datacenters each year for the foreseeable future.

Microsoft currently operates more than 200 datacenters. Its currently operating and planned datacenters are located in 34 countries worldwide, networked with more than 165,000 miles of subsea cable, officials said. The company is expecting to add datacenters in at least 10 more countries in calendar 2021, with Malaysia being the most recently announced. Microsoft typically provides customers with  Azure, Microsoft 365 and Dynamics 365 services in all of its cloud datacenters.

And last month, officials pledged to offer Azure Availability Zones in every country in which Microsoft publicly operates by the end of calendar 2021, plus offering Availability Zones in all new Azure regions Microsoft launches going forward.
