Other updates:

Following last month's announcement of zone-redundant database support, Azure SQL Database is further expanding the power of databases and elastic pools by including read scale-out support in the Premium and Business Critical service tiers. 
This capability redirects the read-only client connections to one of the automatically provisioned HA replicas and effectively doubles the compute capacity of the database or elastic pool at no additional charge. This is ideal for load balancing of complex analytical workloads without affecting the primary OLTP workload.

Microsoft Azure expands with two new regions for Australia
Last month, we announced two new regions for Microsoft Azure located in Canberra, Australia and specifically designed to meet the needs of the Australian government. This increases the number of Azure regions announced across the globe to 42, more than any other major cloud provider.​ The two new regions, available in the first-half of 2018, are intended to be capable of handling sensitive Unclassified data as well as Protected data for the Australian government. Protected is a data classification for the first level of national security classified information in Australia. This is being achieved through a strategic partnership with the Australian-owned firm Canberra Data Centres (CDC). CDC are the preeminent specialist datacenter provider for secure government data in Australia with four modern Canberra-based facilities that hold the accreditations and security controls to handle even Top Secret classified data. ​
