Separate Fabric and Embedded Subscriptions

Hello Community,

 

My organization is looking to create a Microsoft Fabric subscription in US EAST 2 and migrate off our current A1 SKU in North Central US. I have been researching the community forums as well as other resources and not finding out if what we are trying to do is possible.

 

We have two subscriptions, 1 that is managed by a vendor and a 1 managed internally. We want to move everything to the vendor subscription to consolidate as the only item internally managed is our A1 SKU. To do this we planned on creating a Fabric trial in the vendor subscription and manually migrating everything over.

When trying to create a Microsoft Fabric subscription in US EAST 2 region we get the below message.  The only service in North Central US is our Power BI A1 SKU subscription we are trying to move away from.

Reading the blog post (https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/power-bi-embedded-with-microsoft-fabric/) from Microsoft shows that our A1 SKU is not compatible with Fabric and would require new work spaces which works fine as it would not interfere with our current embeddings during our transition.

The problem still becomes that this is utilizing the North Central US region and we want to have Fabric in East US 2 with the rest of our services.

 

I have found that we can request Microsoft to do a region transfer (https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/support/service-admin-region-move) but that can take up to 6 months and have a negative impact on our services and our business so this would not be optimal to do. Additionally it says in the information that region transfers for Fabric are not supported so we want to make sure to have fabric in the best location and for us that would be the EAST US 2 where our other products are.

It is possible to create a Microsoft Fabric trial in US EAST 2 to allow us to do our own migration of our data?

 

Thank you for any support/suggestions/information anyone can provide.

 

Sincerely,

 

Michal Smoley

I opened a support ticket with Microsoft and after a 30 minute call what we are looking to do is not possible.  We either have to migrate our powerbiembedded region first which is a no go for our organization or wait to see if they offer Fabric transfers in the future.  We are regrouping to decide our next steps but it looks like we might have to live with out all the features of Fabric since we cannot have two different SKUs storing data in two different regions.
