Supported cloud platforms and regions

Your Sigma organization is hosted on one of the following cloud platforms:

  • Amazon Web Services (AWS)
  • Microsoft Azure
  • Google Cloud (GCP)

If you're unsure which cloud platform hosts your organization, you can reference it in the Administration portal (if you're assigned the Admin account type). Go to Administration > Account > General Settings, then locate the Site section. The Cloud field identifies the platform hosting your organization.
