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.
