Data Sovereignty and the Cloud!!!
Great article from NextDC, allot of companies are moving away from out-sourcing models and there are similar implication to hosting data on the cloud.
Also, allot of US companies are starting to manufacture in the US, as they are starting to realise the real impact of trying to out-source production to countries with low wages..
But, aslo this impacts Cloud Providers based in the US, who are now forced to provide all data to the government
Complex issues, but its good to see a article like this written in Australia..
