Announcing general availability of Azure Virtual Desktop service metadata storage in Europe


We are excited to announce the general availability of storing Azure Virtual Desktop service metadata in the Europe geography. This feature allows customers to choose West Europe and North Europe as regions to create their service objects in. The Azure geography associated with these regions is where the metadata for the host pool and other service objects will be stored.


Additionally, we also started the public preview for metadata storage in the UK geography that includes the UK South and UK West regions.


With this update, Azure Virtual Desktop supports storing metadata in the following geographies:

  • United States (US) (Generally available)
  • Europe (EU) (Generally available)
  • United Kingdom (UK) (Public preview)
