Deployment of Windows applications in other regions than tenant region must speed up
Applications that are prepared for Windows deployments will be downloaded fine if the Windows client is in the same region as the tenant region. But if the Windows client is part of an international enterprise and is located in another region, the download speed breaks down to 2-3 Mbit/s (we are assuming, that application installation packages don‘t get replicated to other regions). With TCP limitations in mind we were able to download large files from a cross-region Azure storage with up to 30-50Mbit/s. Intune should work with that as a minimum. But what would even better: Intune must be capable to replicate application packages to other regions a) automatically or b) controlled manually. Option a) would be more SaaS-like but consumes more storage of cause.

I fully support this.
But a kind of steering for which regions the installation package is to be deployed will be necessary
