Data Sovereignty Requirements for xSPs outside United States
As organizations generate exponential volumes of unstructured data, it’s important for Managed Service Providers and/or Cloud Service Providers (xSPs) to be able to offer broad, end-to-end cloud services that are scalable, cost effective, and secure.
This in-depth white paper covers the 5 most important things xSPs outside the USA need to know about their data in the era of sovereign cloud:
- Protection & Management
Data needs to be stored on-premises in the country it was collected to be protected by national laws. For this purpose, object storage is a more affordable, scalable solution than block or file. xSPs also need to embed data protection into the cloud stack with backup, encryption, and micro- segmentation capabilities to secure workloads.
For smaller providers, storage-as-a-service (STaaS) and backup-as-a-service (BUaaS) are becoming increasingly popular to address the storage and backup requirements of their customers on a subscription model. With on-prem private cloud storage technology, MSPs can position themselves as a viable alternative to hyperscalers to help customers take control of their data.
