Hi team,

May I know how to perform the migration or move Data Factory (V2), Databricks Service and Storage account contents and its configuration to a different region?
Because I get the Not Supported by service error.

I wonder what's the alternative procedures for me to redeploy it into another region without dataloss.

Thank you in advance.

    Hello @EnterpriseArchitect ,

    Thanks for the question and using MS Q&A platform.

    May I know how to perform the migration or move Data Factory (V2), Databricks Service and Storage account contents and its configuration to a different region?

    Your are experiencing the Not Supported by service error because services like (Data Factory, Databricks and storage accounts) doesn't directly support to move to a different region.

    I wonder what's the alternative procedures for me to redeploy it into another region without dataloss

    Yes, there are alternative methods to move services like (Data Factory, Databricks and storage accounts) without any dataloss.

    Azure Data Factory:

    Move Data Factory to a new region: If you want to move your Data Factory to a different region, the best way is to create a copy in the targeted region, and delete the existing one.

    For more details, refer Copy or clone a data factory in Azure Data Factory and also check the MS Q&A thread addressing similar issue.

    Azure Databricks:

    You may checkout the MS Q&A thread addressing similar issue.

    And also, you may checkout the Regional disaster recovery and migration tools for Azure Databricks clusters.

    Azure Storage Accounts:

    For Azure Storage Account, you need to create a destination storage account and then copy the data to source to the destination storage account. Once the data is copied to destination storage account, you can delete the source storage account.

    To move a storage account, create a copy of your storage account in another region. Then, move your data to that account by using AzCopy, or another tool of your choice based on your requirement and the data size (Click on Browse data migration tools).

    For more details, refer Move an Azure Storage account to another region.

    Hope this will help. Please let us know if any further queries.
