Azure DevOps從其他資料中心搬移到東亞資料中心


去年時候,公布了在東亞資料中心-香港,可以使用VSTS了,這時候就想當時在美國中南部資料中心內的VSTS,是否可以搬移到東亞來,聽說這樣在台灣使用上網路速度會比較快。當然,另一個重點是讓大陸的同事也可以使用VSTS。但是,已經在原本資料中心跑一陣子的VSTS,不可能在東亞重建阿,所以,只能用搬移。不過,這步驟卻無法自己手動進行,殘念!!


如果要進行搬移的動作,必須透過VSTS的Support來進行


開啟Support後,選擇Basic Support


在類別中選擇Configuring Team Service,然後再選擇Changing Account Region


之後,就回答一些表單上問題,就可以把需求寄出去。根據經驗來說,如果是要講國語的,基本上會是由微軟上海的客服中心打來跟你詢問一些問題。如果是白天填寫,運氣好的話,大概2~3小時就會接到微軟客服電話,電話大概就基本問一些問題,另外,如果你不是VSTS的Account Owner是無法做這項變更的,此外,如果在Support上面留下的聯絡Email與Account Owner Email不同,也會多問問問題。


如果都OK後,會在Mail收到下面幾項問題,必須填好回覆給微軟,就可以依照你想要時間進行搬遷,目前經驗大概是五小時內可以搬完,問題題目如下:

  • What is the current region where the VSTS account resides (for example, United States)?
  • What is the target region where the VSTS account should be migrated (for example, Western Europe)? Currently the supported region are listed as below (Hong Kong is for East Asia)
  • Some downtime will be required to complete the migration (~5 hrs). As such, please provide a good date and time (in UTC) during which the migration can occur.
    • For example, any night between 13:00 - 21:00 UTC, or anytime on weekends.
    • Please allow us the 2-3 days of pre-work, before the date you hope the move to happen, thanks a lot for your understanding.
  • Please explain the reason for this request; was the desired region not available at the time you created your account? Was your account created in an unexpected region?
  • Do you use the hosted XAML build controller? It’s not supported now but we hope to confirm if you still have it in your VSTS account.

把以上問題填完回覆後,就等時間到了,就會開始搬遷了。搬遷完畢,客服也會通知你
