The Azure Australia Central Regions in Canberra is a Cloud computing experience that purposely supports the Australian and New Zealand Government and critical national infrastructure sectors. Whitelisting is the mechanism by which Microsoft restricts members of the Azure Australia Central Region community.
The Azure Australia Central Regions fall under the global Azure public offer type policies. Therefore, before submitting your whitelisting request, please review our offers page to determine if you are using an Azure credit offer type that can be used in the Australia Central Regions.
The whitelisting process is relatively straight forward, you can initiate the process directly within the Azure Portal, just follow the steps below:
Now at Step 2 of the process, you’ll need to:
You can also include the following additional resource needs in your support request, or submit via a separate support request at another time:
Azure VM Reserved Instances
List the specific VM Types for which you plan to apply Reserved Instances, and your estimated usage in Cores.
Note: Once whitelisting is confirmed for Reserved Instances, you can make the Reserved Instance purchase.
In the details section of the request, add the SQL Datawarehouse requirements with the following:
SQL Database Managed Instances
In the Basics section of the request, list the following:
In the details section, add the following:
The final step, Step 3, is to enter your contact details.
You will need to repeat the steps above for each Subscription ID that you wish to have whitelisted. That said, if you are submitting multiple requests or have previously been successfully whitelisted there is no need to repeat the information entry required in Step 2.3 (if you are a customer) or Step 2.4 (if you are a partner or supplier).
Once you have created the support ticket, the ticket follows our standard process, including a stop with the Australian Azure Engineering team in Canberra, where we validate the claims made in the request. This may include reaching out to the requestor for further details, so please ensure you add up to date contact details.
The support ticket will be routed back to you once complete, letting you know of the result. If successful, you will then see the Azure Australia Central and Central 2 Regions and can begin to consume resources just like any other Azure region.
