Logit ELK Account Regions Introduction
When adding a Logit ELK Stack to your account, you can choose from a number of dedicated data centres across Europe, the US and UK regions to host your Stack. Selecting the corresponding storage region for your geographic area allows you to ensure that data is being processed in compliance with your specific regional data guidelines and meet any local compliance requirements.
Your choice of data centre is not limited by your own geographic location as we also enable our users to choose to create an account with their data hosted in any of the regions cited above, regardless of where you or your systems reside.
Viewing the current Region for an existing Account
To view the region setting for your current account select Account Settings from your dashboard, located in the left-hand menu. The region selected for the account is displayed in the account profile, located within the overview section.
Setting the Region for your Account
The storage region is an account level setting, this means that when you create your first Stack on an account, the region selected will become the default for that account.
Any subsequent Stacks that are added to the account will also be added to the default account region. If you require Stacks to be hosted in an additional region it is recommended that you create a new account by selecting New Account from the left-hand dashboard menu.
Adding the first ELK Stack to a Trial Account
When adding the first Stack to a Trial account, you have the option to select the storage region for the Stack as shown above. If you need to change your storage region within your 14-day trial period you can delete the current Stack and add a new one to choose a new default storage region.
To quickly view the Region of a specific Stack, choose Stack Settings > Overview and from here you can see which Region the current Stack is currently deployed to.
Adding additional ELK Stacks to a Trial Account
Any additional Stacks that are added to an account are automatically configured to be deployed to the default account region. You will notice below that there is no storage region selection required.
Adding the first ELK Stack to a Paying Account
When adding the first Stack to a Paying account, you have the option to choose the storage region for the Stack as shown below. This will complete the account setup and configure the default region for this account.
Adding additional ELK Stacks to a Paying Account
Any additional Stacks that are added to a paying account similarly are automatically configured to be deployed to the default account region. You will notice below that there is no storage region selection required when adding additional ELK Stacks.
Choose Next to confirm the new Stack details.
If you’re happy with the configuration choose Confirm Stack Creation to add the Stack to the default region for this account.
