Availability of Micorsoft Azure worldwide

Hello all,

My company is developing an app and our backend is running on Microsoft Azure Cloud.
Is there any information in which countries Microsoft Azure is not available? For example, we have read that Azure is not available in Cuba. Are there other "problem" regions?

Thank you in advance!

Best regards

Jan Rößner

Wow, thank you for the fast answer! But if possibe i need some more informationen. We are working already with the cloud of azure. We develop a app and the backend is working with azure. I just wonder if there are conutries, which will not be able to work with our app because azure does not work there. For example in cuba.. when i understood it right, then microsoft azure will not work there. Are there similiar cases, like china or maybe russia?

Thank you very much!

Best regards
