Can we select the region while creating Azure migrate project

I noticed that once you select the Geography as US, it creates artifacts in random US region. For ex: if my footprint is in WUS2 region, Can I ensure that the resources are getting created in the same region?

Hi @shanky

The geography is only used to store the metadata gathered from on-premises servers. You can select any target region for migration.

Create a project in a specific region
In the portal, you can select the geography in which you want to create the project. If you want to create the project within a specific Azure region, using the following API command to create the project.

 PUT /subscriptions/<subid>/resourceGroups/<rg>/providers/Microsoft.Migrate/MigrateProjects/<mymigrateprojectname>?api-version=2018-09-01-preview "{location: 'centralus', properties: {}}"

Does it impact my migration if the project is created in CUS and I am migrating to WUS2 region? Especially the speed of migration etc?

We can use the API ,but we would have to spend more efforts in setting up everything from scratch(appliance,discovery,assessment)

@shanky When going through creating a Migrate Project you will be asked what region to create the project in. This is only used to store the information regarding the Project itself. Such as assessment info, servers, type of migration etc.

When you then go through and do the migration, you will be specifically asked which region to migrate the VM to.

Here is a document outlining the supported regions for project creation and a bit more explanation
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/migrate/migrate-support-matrix#supported-geographies-public-cloud

Here you can see directly under step 6 that you specify the target region for migration/replication when you enable replication on the VM.

Hope this helps!

Thanks! this answer was very helpful, specially the API Command. As our sandbox Azure Lab only accepts Migrate projects in US East and US West regions I was struggling with how to specifiy that region. :)
