Application Insights Availability Monitoring: Test Locations Updated

Application Insights Availability Monitoring test locations have moved to Azure datacenters recently. They were previously hosted in Microsoft on-premises datacenters. With this move:

  • We will be able to add more locations with the growing network of Azure datacenters.
  • Test locations will align with the regions you choose to host your applications.
  • Improved service availability and resiliency with Azure backed redundancy & recovery.

There is no need to update existing tests. All tests have been migrated to and running from the new locations corresponding to the old locations listed below. The portal will reflect the new location names shortly.
