Task 2 - Set up Your Organisation


You can use Tyk Cloud to manage your APIs effectively and with minimal effort. To do so, you need to set up your organisation, which is what this page explains how to do.

Step One - Name your Organisation

Give your organisation a name. This is up to you, but most use their company name.

Step Two - Select a Home Region

Select a region from the drop-down list where your Control Planes will be deployed and your data stored. The number of regions available will depend on your licence. Further regions can be added as an upgrade option.


Tyk Cloud can currently be deployed across 2 AWS regions in the USA plus UK, Germany and Singapore. If you have any concerns about Brexit impacting the way you store data you should read AWS’s regularly updated Brexit statement.
