Locations show the available geographical locations for each of the following cloud providers:

  • Amazon Web Services (AWS)
  • Google Cloud Platform (GCP)
  • Microsoft Azure

Locations are scoped to an org and the org administrator can turn off/on the locations that are permitted when configuring a GVC.

By default, all locations are enabled. If a location is disabled, any workloads within that location will be removed. Further, if a location is enabled, all workloads will be provisioned to that location.

If a company is restricted for legal or compliance reasons to only use certain cloud providers, disabling those providers will ensure that workloads will not be deployed to those providers.


Control Plane can enable any cloud provider location.

If a location is not shown, please email support@controlplane.com with the provider and location and it will be provisioned.

BYOK Locations
