Business value

Having more environments gives you new opportunities. For example, you can create more business branches, move into more countries or regions, or expand within your current country or region.

Feature details

Starting with 2020 release wave 2, every new Business Central customer with a Business Central Premium or Essential subscription can use one production environment and three sandbox environments, at no extra charge. They can then choose to purchase an unlimited number of additional production environments, if needed, through their CSP partner. Each additional production environment comes with three additional sandbox environments and 4 GB additional, tenant-wide database capacity. Production and sandbox environments can be created and used in any country or region where Business Central online is available, including the countries or regions where the existing environments are running.

Administrators can create the additional environments in the Business Central admin center. On the Capacity page, you can see how many environments of each type you can create.

The environments quota will be applied when you try to create a new environment, or copy an existing environment, in the Business Central admin center.
