Mac Developer: Microsoft building data centers in Germany that US government can’t touch | Ars Technica
Microsoft building data centers in Germany that US government can’t touch | Ars Technica Microsoft has launched a new kind of cloud service in Germany where user data is controlled by a "data trustee" operating under German law. Microsoft is unable to access user data without the permission of the data trustee or the customer, even if it is instructed to do so by the US government. If permission is granted by the data trustee, Microsoft will still only do so under its supervision.
My prediction for the fallout of TTP is an explosion of hosting facilities outside the TTP zone.
