What exactly is the eu control plane? in MuleSoft 258

 What exactly is the eu control plane? in MuleSoft

In MuleSoft 4, the EU Control Plane is a separate instance of the Anypoint Platform hosted entirely within the European Union (EU) data centers. This provides a dedicated environment for organizations that need to comply with strict data residency regulations within the EU.

Here's a closer look at the EU Control Plane:


  • Enables organizations to deploy and manage their APIs, applications, and related data exclusively within the EU. This ensures data remains geographically isolated and adheres to regulations like GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation).


  • Offers all the core functionalities of the standard Anypoint Platform available outside the EU, including:

  • API development and management

  • Integration capabilities

  • Runtime environments

  • Security features

  • Management and governance tools

Benefits for EU Users:

  • Data Residency: Guarantees data remains within the EU, addressing compliance concerns.

  • Regulatory Alignment: Simplifies adherence to data privacy regulations like GDPR.

  • Data Security: Provides an additional layer of security by keeping data geographically isolated.

Things to Consider:

  • Separate Account: Organizations need to create a separate account for the EU Control Plane, as data isn't shared with the standard platform.

  • Limited Availability: The EU Control Plane might have limited features or functionalities compared to the standard platform due to ongoing development.

  • Application of Use: The EU Control Plane is primarily suited for organizations with strict data residency requirements within the EU.

Here's an analogy:

Imagine Anypoint Platform as a large store with products (APIs and integration tools). The EU Control Plane is a similar store located within the EU, offering the same products but catering specifically to customers with EU residency requirements.
