When creating an Azure resource, is the default/selected region random or it's a calculated recommendation?

When creating an Azure resource, there is a default, selected region in the location drop down.
Is this "randomly" selected or its a "calculated recommendation"?

@AndriyBilous Thanks for raising this question! Firstly, apologies for the delay in responding here and any inconvenience this issue may have caused.

It's more calculated than random, trying to match capacity with geo( "trying to find somewhere close to you that has the most available capacity")

Hope this helps!

Kindly let us know if the above helps or you need further assistance on this issue.

I haven't seen any document stating that the Azure chooses right location for you.

It has been always random for me. When I create resources, it has been giving default location selected from US, India & Australia.. so it's random in my opinion

But key thing is to choose the location which is near to you or customers who will be accessing the resources and data

Edit #1:

Hope you got the answer on StackOverflow here -

Do you have any official documentation link that proofs your assumptions?

Nope sorry. Let's wait to see what Microsoft support members say.

Also, I see people here complaining that they get random region every time and asking for improvement to have default setting for region - https://feedback.azure.com/forums/223579-azure-portal/suggestions/6715615-when-selecting-a-location-how-to-save-as-default
