Today, we are excited to announce the General Availability of Azure Resource Mover, a free global service available for use in all public regions and within regions in China. We announced the Public Preview of Azure Resource Mover at Ignite last year and since then the service has seen healthy adoption by customers looking to move resources between regions and whose valuable feedback has helped drive improvements to the service.
Enterprise grade customers are constantly looking for ways to reduce latency, ensure compliance with the latest data governance and sovereignty regulations, and achieve business continuity on Azure. Azure Resource Mover is built to get the most from Azure’s datacenter region portfolio, providing customers with the flexibility to operate in the location that best suits their needs. We continue to expand Azure to new markets with new datacenter regions announced in 14 countries in 2020 and additional expansion in the US, Indonesia, and China in 2021. In the last year Azure has launched Availability Zones in an additional 5 regions with a roadmap to have AZs in every country we operate Azure in by the end of 2021. With Azure Resource Mover, customers can now take advantage of Azure’s growth in new markets and regions with Availability Zones with moves across regions that support their business needs.
Key enhancements and new features
Azure Resource Mover transforms the way customers can move resources between regions, now with improved controls and enhancements to enable enterprise grade customers to plan large scale moves confidently with even fewer steps than before.
We have designed Azure Resource Mover with customer feedback and experience in mind. Customers using Azure Resource Mover can now provide real-time feedback and communicate directly with product teams throughout the move experience. The service is now available through the Azure portal, PowerShell, and SDKs with any Azure subscription. Learn more about Azure Resource Mover and how you can get started on your move.
