Notes:

* Data Center Regions to Store Data - Microsoft Stream is available globally. However, if your tenant is in a geographic region where Stream hasn't been deployed yet, your Stream data will be stored in the nearest geographic region. Over the coming quarters we will be deploying Stream to more geographic regions so your data can be stored closer to your home region.
