Availability of OpenAI text-embedding-3 on European servers

Steffen Schreiber 20 Reputation points


I noticed that there are prices for some European regions for the text-embedding-3 models from OpenAI (e.g. here https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/details/cognitive-services/openai-service/), but the model itself is not available in these regions (currently only available in three North American regions).

Are there plans to make text-embedding-3-large and/or text-embedding-3-small available on European servers and if yes, when might that be?

Best regards,

    Hello @Steffen Schreiber , Thanks for using Microsoft Q&A Platform.

    Unfortunately, there is no ETA on availability of OpenAI text-embedding-3 on European regions.

    Please kindly refer to the model availability document here. It's up to date: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/ai-services/openai/concepts/models#standard-deployment-model-availability

    I hope this helps!
