What Can Microsoft Azure Help Me With?

When reading this, I have a question about cloud computing:

"There are many benefits to using Microsoft Azure and cloud computing services. Azure is available in more regions than other cloud providers, with data centers in at least 36 different countries. The cloud platform offers comprehensive compliance, scalability, and flexible options. Moreover, data centers located near you will help you reduce latency. Azure is a great choice for data-intensive tasks such as web development, database management, etc. Whether you're running a single application or need to manage a large database, Azure can provide the best services for your needs.

Another key advantage of cloud services is their increased reliability, scalability, and efficiency. These qualities are key to the core value of cloud computing. Azure's robust servers and databases ensure that your business can remain online 24 hours a day. In addition, it's easy to scale up or down your computing resources, and you pay only for the services you use. These benefits make it the perfect cloud option for small businesses and large corporations alike."


What happens if I move to a country like Iran (if it's not on the list of supported countries) and want to stay there for 1-2 months? Will I be able to access the vaults, or will I need to use a VPN? How can I solve this issue, as I am engaged in support of a large 100% free essay database?

Also, I've been using it for a long time, but I want to point out that I recently learned about "Disaster recovery":

"If you have a small or midsize business and want to improve your ability to recover from outages, Microsoft Azure can help. Azure's backup and disaster recovery services can be integrated with on-premises cyber security programs. Azure Backup and Site Recovery provide businesses with secure cloud storage and account backups. They also allow businesses to create world-scale business continuity plans by backing up data in the cloud and restoring it in the event of a disaster.
Using the Azure disaster recovery service requires a high degree of expertise. You must be an IT expert to set up and maintain the solution. Azure Site Recovery is not automated. Manual failover can be costly if you aren't sure what you're doing. Additionally, the service requires additional software, such as System Center Virtual Machine Manager for multi-VM configurations. In addition, Microsoft Azure disaster recovery services can be costly if IT specialists do not use them."


Will I be able to do it in Iran as well?


Thanks a lot!

@JamesAdams-9849,
Thank you for reaching out to the Microsoft Q&A platform. As per your requirement, whether you can access the Azure services from Iran, and add new services from Iran? Happy to answer your questions.

Azure is currently commercially available in 140 countries and Iran isn't listed. Reference URL - https://azure.microsoft.com/en-in/free/free-account-faq/

I am afraid that it is not possible to create an Azure account using Iran as the country. As Iran is not on the available list. However, if you have a credit card belonging to the country where Azure is available, then you could create the Azure account using that country. If you already have services running under a subscription of a supported country then you can access the services from Iran.

Hope I answered both questions.
