Where is data stored?

Hi Team,

 

Please tell me where the powerBI service's dashboard data is stored

 

When creating with powerBIDisktop and linking to BI service where region will data and model be saved?

I understand that saved in blobstrage and sqldatabase by documentation.

 

The location of the company is Japan.
Is it the East Japan or West Japan region of Azure, can the storage location be arbitrarily specified by the user?

Hi @surfin_go

In the Power BI Service you can get this info by clicking "?".

Hi @surfin_go,

Warning:

This selection cannot be changed! 


The data region is based on the country that was selected when the tenant was first created. This applies to sign up for Office 365 in addition to Power BI as this information is shared. If this is a new tenant, when you sign up, you will see a country drop down. And according to this article, this selection for data region cannot be changed! Smiley Happy
