Quickstart: Create your Azure ATP instance

In this quickstart, you'll create your Azure ATP instance in the Azure ATP portal. In Azure ATP, you'll have a single instance, previously called a workspace. A single instance enables you to manage multiple forests from a single pane of glass.


Currently, Azure ATP data centers are deployed in Europe, North America/Central America/Caribbean and Asia. Your instance is created automatically in the data center that is geographically closest to your Azure Active Directory (Azure AD). Once created, Azure ATP instances aren't movable.
