Data residency for User Directory -- where is the data stored?

We are a Canadian company and we cannot have user data land on U.S. soil. I know Okta is hosted out of AWS. Is there an opportunity to select ca-central-1 as the location for the user store?


Based on

is it fair to say Okta can store data in two regions: U.S. and E.U ?

Hi @clearwaterstrem

At the moment, Okta customer data can be stored in United States, European Union or Australia, depending on the cell in which the Okta tenant resides.

Awesome, much thanks!

It would be helpful I think if you post this somewhere in your documentation. Auth0 has a section dedicated to data residency and what options are available to customers not in the “standard regions”.

Please refer to a Partner of Okta:
Datex is helping Okta customers concerned about Data Residency overcome that roadblock.
