'Desktops and apps can be deployed on virtual machines (VMs) in any Azure region, and the management solution and data for these VMs will reside in the United States (US East 2 region). This may result in data transfer to the United States.'
Is there a road-map for being able to host the management plane in other regions? For some of our customers, UK hosting of services is a requirement and being able to host management in UK is likely to be key factor in their ability to adopt WVD. Potentially in the shorter term, assurances wrt the data held in the management plane may facilitate an exception.
I'm not aware of new config options to select the service data location - are you able to provide some further information to clarify how the regional based locating of service data is configured please. It would be really helpful if you could provide some further detail to expand upon your reply.
From the template Windows Virtual Desktop - Provision a host pool, on the Basic tab the 'Service metadata location' only has one option 'United States' so it looks like the management plane is still US. Anyone from the product team able to confirm when this is likely to be expanded to other regions?
