SYDNEY—Microsoft said it will make its largest-ever single investment in Australia and expand its cloud computing and AI infrastructure in the country while partnering with the Australian intelligence agency in charge of cybersecurity.
Microsoft, which timed the announcement to coincide with Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese’s U.S. visit, said it will invest 5 billion Australian dollars (US$3.16 billion) over the next two years. It said the investment will grow its local data-center footprint from 20 sites to 29 sites spread across Canberra, Melbourne and Sydney.
