  • Hi,

    The Australia Regions are available only to customers with billing addresses in Australia and New Zealand.

    There is a restriction where you must have a subscription associated with a billing address in Australia or New Zealand. 

    The restriction on subscription location and access is documented here at the bottom:

  • Hmmm - that seems to contradict the very concept of Azure as a worldwide platform. No such restrictions on AWS, as far as I know. Does that mean that if a company is to plan for global deployment, they should go for AWS instead?

  • Agree, will have to have a look at AWS
