    That depends on your network design.  Generally speaking collectors are installed on servers, which means they'll be in the same region.  Less commonly, collectors may be deployed in a remote collection configuration which allows them to collect logs from other machines (that do not have collectors installed) over SSH/WMI.  In this case you could technically have collectors in regions different from the instances you are collecting from, but you will have to verify that there is a clear path of communication between the two.  You will also need to address the security implications of such a configuration.

    Thanks Yoway Buorn for the reply. But why we have different links to download sumo collector binary in URL https://service.sumologic.com/help/Default.htm#URLs_to_Download_a_Collector.htm   then ?

    I don't know if there is an underlying design reason behind the decision to include per-deployment download URLs, but this does not affect where collectors can be deployed.  In other words, you can download a collector from any deployment (URL) and deploy it anywhere and configure it to ship logs to any other deployment.
