Where can be the location of a Azure Resource Group?

When you create a new Resource Group, i.e. with the PowerShell Cmdlet New-AzureRmResourceGroup, there is a mandatory parameter called “Location”. This specifies in which Azure data center the resource group will be placed. A resource group can be placed in any location and does not have to be in the same location as the Azure subscription. Resource groups can contain resources from different locations.

To find out more use:

Get-Help New-AzureRmResourceGroup

.

To determine which location supports each resource type, use the Cmdlet:

Get-AzureRmResourceProvider -ListAvailable

.
You must be logged in you Azure Subscription for that.

To find out which Azure Data Center exists and with that, which values the -Location parameter can have (like “West Europe”, “East US” etc.) look at https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/regions/.
