Choosing a data center for your project
When you're creating a new project in Kentico Cloud, you can choose which data center will store your data.
Table of contents
This feature requires a Professional plan or higher.
By choosing a location of a data center, your project data will be stored in the selected area. Project data represents all your content created within the Kentico Cloud application.
This does not include the user metadata required for Kentico Cloud service to work, which will always be stored in the data center located in the West Europe region. The reason behind is that users in Kentico Cloud can work on different projects across multiple data centers. Learn more about how Kentico Cloud handles personal data in compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation.
To ensure the quality of the service, we are using the Microsoft Azure regions.
Data center locations
Below are the locations in which we currently support storing the data for your Kentico Cloud projects:
- North America, East US (Virginia)
- Europe, West Europe (Netherlands)
- Australia, East Coast (New South Wales)
When choosing one of the locations in the UI, the data centers will be displayed as East US, Netherlands, and Australia. The default option for the location of a data center is East US. This means that the East US data center will be automatically allocated for your project, unless you choose otherwise.
Important: You cannot change the location of the data center once the project is created after clicking Create project in the UI.
Note that if you downgrade to a lower subscription plan, your data remains in the data center you chose when creating the project and this option can no longer be changed.
Kentico Cloud uses a global Content Delivery Network (CDN) powered by Fastly to deliver content from your project to your website. The CDN has edge nodes all around the world, ensuring fast content delivery no matter the destination.
