I have an azure account Location .Canada East

I am using this azure account and created a API kind for openai (azure openAI)

When i send a prompt or data to openai(azure) where does the data go?

Does the data stay in Canada or does it go to an openai server located in the United States?

    @Marc Siegel This depends on the region in which your Azure OpenAI Service resource has been created in.

    So, if you have created the resource in the Canada East region, the data stays within the region.

    Hi Marc Siegel

    Thats a great question, Azure OpenAI services are deployed in specific Azure regions which the user chooses, including Azure OpenAI, is influenced by the Azure region you have chosen for your resources. In your case, since you mentioned your Azure account location is "Canada East," it automatically says that the associated resources, including the OpenAI services, are provisioned in the Canada East Azure region itself.

    The specific server locations of OpenAI's infrastructure may not be publicly disclosed, and it may depend Microsoft and OpenAI's, policies.

    If you find this answer useful kindly accept it, thanks much.
