I'm looking to move my Premium capacity to another region, will my dataflows still work?

Hi, I'm looking to move my Power BI Premium capacity into a new region. I'm planning to set up a second capacity, migrate everything from my current capacity to the new capacity, then delete the old capacity.

 

My question is regarding dataflows. My new capacity will be in a different region from my organisation's tenant. How will this affect dataflows? The dataflows will need to be in dedicated capacity because they sit behind our self-service BI function for free users under the Premium infrastructure. Can dataflows sit in a different region from the tenancy if on Power BI Premium capacity?

Hi there

As far as I am aware that should work.

Because it is located physically in a different region it will then possibly take a bit longer for things to run as it has to move over a larger distance.

With that being said there were some improvements with Multi Geo: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/announcing-performance-improvements-for-multi-geo-premium-c...

HI @TobiasOwen,

If your data source credentials do not contain any region/geo-based settings, it probably reduces the performance of operations without serious effects. (e.g. the delay of requests that send/receive between two regions)

Perhaps you can take a look at following document about moving/migrate your tenants:

@v-shex-msft I do not want to move my tenant so that documentation is not useful.

I just want to move my Premium capacity to a different geo. Is there any documentation on this, and how it affects dataflows?

Thanks.

@GilbertQ The link you posted has a query in the comments about whether dataflows are supported in multi-geo reporting. This is the query I am looking to answer - but thanks for the link.

Hi @TobiasOwen,

In fact, the shared documents also not explain these scenarios clearly. Perhaps you can contact to power bi premium support for further documents about the move data region.
