Azure regions are important for understanding where your data is located. Regions are divided into two types: West US and East US.
Your data is automatically stored in the correct region for your subscription type. However, you can also specify a region if you need to move your data to a different region.
To find your region, open the Azure portal and go to Settings > General > Region. The Region drop-down list shows the available regions.
If you don’t see your region in the drop-down list, it’s either not available or you’re using a subscription type that doesn’t support that region. To find out if a subscription type supports a region, go to the pricing page for the subscription type and look for the Region heading.
If you want to move your data to a different region, you need to first find out if your data is already in the correct region. To do this, open the Azure portal and go to Settings > General > Region.
The region column in the table shows the name of the region. If your data is already in the correct region, there’s no need to move it.
If your data is not in the correct region, you can move it by following these steps:
1. Decide where you want your data to be stored.
2. Choose a subscription type that supports the region you want to move to.
3. Add your data to the subscription type.
4. Change the region setting in the Azure portal to the new region.
5. Start using your data in the new region.
