Azure - CSP to CSP Migration across different regions

Hello,

 

Is Azure CSP to CSP migration supported across different regions? If no , what are the other available options and the typical migration process?

Below is the Azure setup 

  1. Current Azure tenant Location : Singapore
  2. Current Subscription Location : Hongkong
  3. New Subscription Location : Singapore

 

Thanks in advance.

Does the customer want to change partners?

If yes, this process can be used. This will not change the location of the services though. 

Also I would recommend to move the customer first to Azure Plan, and then use this much easier transfer process: Transfer Azure subscription under an Azure plan to another CSP partner - Partner Center | Microsoft Docs

Kind regards,

A subscription is not bound to a certain region, if any you can only move a services to different region. While this might work for some services using this method:Move Azure resources to another region - Azure Resource Manager | Microsoft Docs in other scenarios this leads to a redeployment.

 

In other words - you don't need to move/migrate the subscription itself if the Partner stays the same and the tenant stays the same.

Thanks Janosch for your quick response.

 

Can I say that ,in this case the CSP transfer is supported through the standard CSP transfer approach as stated in here ?

Hi @JanoschUlmer , Thanks for your fantastic guidance as always. One queston on the overall tansfer process from a Azure Tenant perspective. Let us say customer "Contoso Hong Hong" purchased Azure Subscription from CSP HK, and "Contoso Hong Kong" purchased from CSP SG, as the customer is based in Singapore as well.  Different local CSP partners . 

 

When the Azure subscription is created for this customer, will it create new Azure Tenant in each CSP Partner? In such cases, will the partner change will still be just a billing change as the Tenants are different?

@knw7 : Hong Kong and Singapore are in the same CSP sales region: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/partner-center/regional-authorization-overview - so both CSP Partners could sell to this customer regardless if the tenant was created in Hong Kong or Singapore.

 

So, there are two scenarios:

1. Customer has one tenant, in either Hong Kong or Singapore. E.g. if tenant was created in Hong Kong, the CSP Partner from Singapore call sell into this tenant. They might send the invoice to the customer with a Singapore address, but the CSP agreement is established with the entity in Hong Kong, company in SG does not get their own agreement. While Microsoft/Partner Center only allows to set up a billing address for Hong Kong, the Partner can decide to send it to another address - it should just be clear that officially the customer is the entity in HK, and users in SG use licenses under the HK agreement.

Azure subscriptions in the customer tenant can be transferred between HK & SG Partners as well.

2. In order to have complete separation, the customer has two different tenants, one set up in HK and the other in SG, each with their own agreement and their own Partner. Azure subscriptions can not be transferred between Partners because those are different tenants (Service/Data migration required).
