There are various scenarios in which you'd want to move your existing Batch account from one region to another. For example, you may want to move to another region as part of disaster recovery planning.

Azure Batch accounts cannot be moved from one region to another. You can however, use an Azure Resource Manager template to export the existing configuration of your Batch account. You can then stage the resource in another region by exporting the Batch account to a template, modifying the parameters to match the destination region, and then deploy the template to the new region. After you upload the template to the new region, you will have to recreate certificates, job schedules, and application packages. To commit the changes and complete the move of the Batch account, remember to delete the original Batch account or resource group.

For more information on Resource Manager and templates, see Quickstart: Create and deploy Azure Resource Manager templates by using the Azure portal.
