Location of PBI Servers

I have a client who is looking at visualisation tools. Power BI, Tableau etc, but specifies, the requirement is to have the hosting servers in the UK. If I were to set up Power BI for them, can we specify UK servers?

Hi, @DataDave76 

 

In powerbi desktop until you publish to powerbi service, data is stored locally within powerbi in pbix (powerbi file) file.

In powerbi service, The data region is based on the country/region you select when you create the tenant. The selection applies to sign up for both Microsoft 365 and to Power BI, because this information is shared. If this is a new tenant, select the appropriate country/region from the list when you sign up.

So as long as you create a tenant, select the UK server.

Reference:Where is my Power BI tenant located? - Power BI | Microsoft Docs

If it doesn’t solve your problem, please feel free to ask me.

 

Best Regards
