Choosing a region when creating new environment

We are currently advising a German client who wants to create a Power Platform solution with highly personalized data.

Ideally, this data should stay within Germany. I referred to the Infrastructure and Availability PDF which mentions the following options for data storage:


So local would be perfect, as it would keep our customer's data within Germany.

Next, I referred to the Geographic Availability report. It clearly lists German data centers as options for Power Apps, Power Automate, and various Dynamics 365 services, so I assume this also applies to Dataverse:


The screenshot lists two German Regions as Local clouds within the geography "Germany".


When I am setting up an environment, I can select a region for this environment.


However, when I'm trying to set up an environment in our tenant (we are also located in Germany), I cannot find Germany in the list of "regions":



Am I missing something? Can someone else create an environment in Germany? I'm stumped.

Looks like you Azure Active Directory tenant is not in the same region where you want to create the Power Platform environment. I think you should rise a Ticket.


Also I share this link where talks about it.

Thanks @akandis, maybe this is the reason.
