In Airbyte Cloud, you can set the default data residency and choose the data residency for individual connections, which can help you comply with data localization requirements.
Choose your default data residency
Default data residency allows you to choose where your data is processed. Set the default data residency before creating a new source or connection so workflows that rely on the default data residency, such as fetching the schema or testing the source or destination, can process data in the correct region.
While the data is processed in a data plane of the chosen residency, the cursor and primary key data is stored in the US control plane. If you have data that cannot be stored in the US, do not use it as a cursor or primary key.
When you set the default data residency, it applies to new connections only. If you do not set the default data residency, the Airbyte Default region is used. If you want to change the data residency for a connection, you can do so in its connection settings.
To choose your default data residency:
On the Airbyte Cloud dashboard, click Settings.
Click Data Residency.
Click the dropdown and choose the location for your default data residency.
Click Save changes.
Depending on your network configuration, you may need to add IP addresses to your allowlist.
Choose the data residency for a connection
You can choose the data residency for your connection in the connection settings. You can also choose data residency when creating a new connection, or you can set the default data residency for your workspace.
To choose the data residency for your connection:
On the Airbyte Cloud dashboard, click Connections and then click the connection that you want to change.
Click the Settings tab.
Click the Data residency dropdown and choose the location for your default data residency.
Click Save changes
Changes to data residency will not affect any sync in progress.
