Should resource groups be divided by region? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I would like to create virtual networks in East Japan and West Japan, create the same VMs, and loadbalancing with traffic managers. Should I separate the resource groups for each region in this case? Or is it OK to create east and west networks in one resource group respectively?

    Thank you.

  • You can do both, whatever fits your needs and logic. If it's easier for you to manage, you can separate them by region or you can place everything in one resource group as this still represents same resource.

    Resource groups are there to make resources easier to manage and you can configure them any way you see fit. So, yes it's OK to put resources from different regions to same resource group.
