Welcome to the Azure China Playbook

Microsoft Azure operated by 21Vianet (Azure China) is a physically separated instance of cloud services located in China. It's independently operated and transacted by Shanghai Blue Cloud Technology Co., Ltd. ("BlueCloud"), a wholly owned subsidiary of Beijing 21Vianet Broadband Data Center Co., Ltd. ("21Vianet").

This playbook is for Azure customers and partners who are preparing to move workloads from Azure global to Azure China, and who need to understand the local regulations in China and differences in sovereign cloud infrastructure. The playbook gives you background information, but you should still conduct due diligence on business regulations, and seek independent legal advice where appropriate.
