Where is my data stored? Data Centre Locations

Kurtis Stewart 21 Reputation points

My team is using Power BI to create and share dashboards/reports with users. When we publish a dashboard/report, how do we find out which Microsoft data centres are storing the underlying data? If the data centres are outside of our geographic region, can we change the data centres to ensure compliance with our region's rules? In Microsoft's compliance documents online, I can see that there is at least one data centre in our region, but I cannot tell if this centre is being utilized currently. We are using data imported from excel and similar (no live connections, direct queries). Thank you.

    Thank you for your post!

    PowerBI is currently not supported here on the Q&A forums, our PowerBI experts are actively answering questions in dedicated forums here:
    Microsoft Power BI Community

    If you leveraged Azure to deploy/ create your PowerBI resource(s), the region/location of the data center will depend on what region you chose during resource deployment. However, I'd recommend reaching out to our PowerBI experts for more info.

    Azure global infrastructure
    Data residency in Azure

    Thank you for your time and patience throughout this issue.
