Use geo-replicated container registries to compliment a multi-region container deployments.


A container registry is stored and maintained by default in a single region. Optionally geo-replication to one or more additional regions can be enabled.

Geo-replicating container registries provides the following benefits:

  • Single registry/ image/ tag names can be used across multiple regions.
  • Network-close registry access within the region reduces latency.
  • As images are pulled from a local replicated registry, each pull does not incur additional egress costs.


Consider using a geo-replicated container registry for multi-region deployments.


This rule applies when analyzing resources deployed (in-flight) to Azure.
