    Hi,

    Something here might help:

    Azure infrastructure security
    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/security/fundamentals/infrastructure

    From the above link:

    "Microsoft Azure runs in datacenters managed and operated by Microsoft. These geographically dispersed datacenters comply with key industry standards, such as ISO/IEC 27001:2013 and NIST SP 800-53, for security and reliability"

    Azure facilities, premises, and physical security
    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/security/fundamentals/physical-security

    From the above link:

    "We design and manage the Azure infrastructure to meet a broad set of international and industry-specific compliance standards, such as ISO 27001, HIPAA, FedRAMP, SOC 1, and SOC 2"

    Best regards,
    Leon

    I have been unable to find any official documentation that any Azure data center is Tier 4 'certified'. There is some anecdotal information from various sources, but nothing official. Kind of strange, as many customers ask for this evidence.
