The Shift to Local Data Centers


In my post on Friday I wrote a fictional piece from 2020 predicting that the world’s IT infrastructure shifted to in-country data centers after the recent surveillance revelations.   It looks like this is going to happen faster than I expected.

What shall we name this trend?  How about “Jurisdictional Data Compliance” or “Jurisdictional Data Security”.  Walk up to your CIO today and ask what your JDC implementation plan is given your client’s new concerns about privacy.
