    Hey France - 

    You can go to https://status.zendesk.com/ and enter your subdomain, and it will tell you which pod you're on.

    And Pod 6 please? Is the information on all of your pod locations available online?

    Hey Mark and France - 

    I'm checking around to find out for you. Curious why you need the information on location - is it a compliance concern?

    Hey guys - 

    Official word from the security team is that it's not the best idea for us to publish this info in the forum, however, you can email a request to security@zendesk.com and they'll be able to help you find out where your data lives.

    Hi Nicole,

    We use many cloud services as part of our service delivery and we need to have this sort of detail for our stakeholders to be able to make informed business decisions.

    We are aware of the location of our services delivered by other cloud providers.

    regards,

    Mark

    When I click on Data Center Location Add-on link I land on https://www.zendesk.com/support/compare/ webpage.

    Where/How can I get "Data Center Location Add-on" ?

    Hey Artur!

    You'll want to contact your Account Manager; they'll be able to get this set up for you! If you're not sure who your Account Manager is, you can contact our Support team and they'll be able to get you in touch. :)

    Is there an RSS feed that we can use for monitoring? We are trying to combine all the alerting sources we need into a dashboard. 

    Thanks!

    We don't have an RSS feed, but we do have our System Status page, which you can subscribe to. You can find the System Status page here: https://status.zendesk.com/

    You can find more information about the Status Page and how to subscribe here: About the System Status page

    I hope that helps!

    We have historically always been located on Pod6.  However, I noticed today on the status page that it shows (Pod 14*).  Does this mean we have temporarily been moved to 14 due to load balancing?  Is that what the asterisk means?

     Sorry, just saw the asterisk at the bottom of the page.  It would be nice though to have an indicator if our Pod has been changed due to load balancing.

    Thanks

    Hi @Jeff. We periodically move customers between Pods to load balance traffic. This is not a temporary move. Though as our customer count grows and different accounts grow in different Pods, another move may happen again in the future.

    Also the asterisk is just pointing to the footnote below the status table which links to the article about "what is a Pod?".

    Good idea about the Pod move notification. Out of curiosity, what is your use case for this?

    Hope this helps!
