About the Japan datacenter

You may request migration to the Japan datacenter upon datacenter availability (March 2015).

If you’re an existing Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online customer with a billing address mapping to a new data center region, review the information in this topic to understand the move process:

Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online is now available as a service within the Japan datacenters.

In addition, CRM Online is currently available in 130 markets and 44 languages enabling us to sell side-by-side with Office 365 in the majority of the markets worldwide. With the inclusion of Japan, our global customers will now be served from datacenters in 5 global regions around the world.

This marks an important step for on our cloud journey to serve our customers and partners in Japan (Japan GEO). By bringing CRM Online to the local region we will be able to serve our customers more effectively and with better performance while also ensuring compliance with local requirements.

In order to better serve customer needs for data residency and reduced latency, we continually evaluate where we should expand availability around the world. We are committed to long-term investment in CRM Online and expansion over time.

CRM Online is currently available in 130 markets and 44 languages enabling us to sell side-by-side with Office365 in the majority of the markets around the globe.

This global expansion will enable us to deliver on the promise of increasing sales productivity while allowing our customers to sell effectively, market smarter, and provide care everywhere to offer amazing experiences to their customers.

Geographic expansion of CRM Online is a high priority and we’re constantly evaluating market needs. While we have no additional information or specifics on future plans to announce at this time, we will update if and when we have something to share.

The CRM Online Japan Geo will consist of datacenters in the Japan East and Japan West.

Yes, on the date of general availability, the standard 99.9% financially backed SLA for CRM Online will apply, just as it does in our other regions around the world. Note: the SLA for CRM Online does not cover Microsoft Dynamics Marketing, Microsoft Social Engagement, or Parature.

Existing CRM Online customers will remain in the datacenters where they are currently deployed unless they request to be moved. Microsoft reserves the right to make a unilateral decision to migrate accounts based on multiple conditions. All new customers purchasing CRM Online in Japan will be provisioned within the Japan datacenter.

You can request a move to the new Japan datacenter by submitting a technical support incident through the Office 365 administrativni centar.

  1. Sign in to https://portal.office.com.

  2. Go to Support > Service Requests > +

  3. Choose More > Dynamics CRM Online

  4. For Feature, select Data Management. For Symptom, select Data Center migration request.

  5. Fill in the rest of the information to submit a service request.

A CRM Online support engineer will assist you in verifying required prerequisites and provide guidance throughout the move process.

Once you have been scheduled for migration, a member of the Microsoft podrška team will work directly with you to discuss scheduling and any other issues that may come up during the migration.

You must be updated to Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online 2015 ispravka or later before migrating to the Japan datacenter. Customers can schedule their update. For more information, see Manage Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online Updates.

The move of each service will be handled separately and customers will be fully supported even if one service has been moved and the other has not. For CRM Online, customers will be able to choose their move date and time. Microsoft will work with the customer to schedule the move. For Office 365, customers will be notified through the message center about the move timeline, but the large number of existing customers means that individual scheduling is not possible. For Office 365 scheduling and migration, see New datacenter regions for Office 365.

The move process for each service is handled separately, but the CRM Online move can be scheduled to coincide with the Office 365 administrativni centar move if requested.

Multi-geo instances will be supported for Japan. Availability of multi-geo instance support will be limited in the initial rollout to a fixed number of eligible customers upon request, and we’ll continue to expand over time.

For additional guidance regarding multiple tenants and multiple instances, see Multiple online instances or tenants. This link will be updated with the CRM Online 2015 launch.

Regardless of where CRM Online is provisioned, you’ll have the ability to determine which of your users will have access to those services based on how you configure CRM Online.

At this time CRM Online is only available for dev/test scenarios and isn’t supported for production use cases. Developers can leverage their MSDN subscription and Azure credits for dev/test scenarios. Note: we recently announced intent to support CRM Online on Azure IaaS but we are dependent on Azure Premium Storage availability being available in each geographic region. Azure’s Limited Public Preview will only be available in the U.S. and part of Europe. We do not have any additional information regarding other geos or general availability at this time.

The Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online Trust Center will be updated as needed when the Japan datacenters launch into general availability. To see the current version of the Trust Center, see: Microsoft Dynamics CRM Trust Center.

These services will be available for purchase in the local market but will be delivered outside of the Japan datacenters at this time. Note: CRM Online leverages Microsoft Azure Active Directory and Multi-Factor Authentication, which don’t offer a region choice to customers.

Billing is related to the country/region where the customer signs up for the CRM Online service, not where the service is deployed.
