The data centres have enjoyed this certification for quite a while now, as has Office 365, but Windows Azure was trailing behind a little. Well, no longer. The certification was performed by BSI Americas. The Windows Azure core services of Compute, Storage, Virtual Network and Virtual Machine are all covered by the certificate. There are more services to go in the future, such as SQL Azure, Access COntrol, Service Bus and others, but the core services are now certified.
