Data sovereignty strategies embraced by 98% of IT decision makers in Europe and US, according to new research


Scality announced the results of an independent survey of IT decision makers across France, Germany, the UK, and the US about their datasovereigntystrategies. 98% of organisations already have policies in place or have plans to implement them. To achieve datasovereignty, 49% of IT decision makers are using hybrid cloud or regional cloud service providers as an alternative to the public cloud.

137 out of 194 countries in the world have data protection and privacy legislation in place.1As a result, organisations must adhere to the data residency guidance and local regulations required for data collection and processing.

According to the survey — conducted by global technology market research firmVanson Bourne— the vast majority of organisations across all four countries either havesovereigntyregulations or policies in place to keep their data in specific locations (80%) or have plans to do so (18%). The report reveals minimal differences between France (where 81% of respondents have policies in place), Germany (79%), UK (82%), and US (78%). Just 2% of respondents worldwide said they do not havesovereigntypolicies in place, nor do they plan to implement them.

Cloud technologies will benefit from this trend, with IT teams employing a number of data storage strategies to achievesovereignty. Across the four geographies, of the organisations that havesovereigntypolicies or plans:

  1. 40% primarily (will) store their data on a large public cloud, such as regional offerings by AWS, Azure, or Google Cloud
  2. 36% of respondents (will) deploy a combined on-premises/public cloud solution, i.e. hybrid cloud
  3. 13% (will) store their data with a regional cloud service provider
  4. 11% (will) use an on-premises data centre.

While some large public cloud providers offer options to store data in specific regions, this isn’t suitable for many organisations that own highly sensitive data, or who wish to avoid vendor lock in and high data access or egress fees.

Hybrid cloudsovereigntyemerges as viable strategy to meet regulations
36% of respondents opted for a solution that combines on-premises or private cloud/s with public cloud/s. This hybrid cloud approach provides the flexibility and control to store data locally for data residency andsovereigntywhile providing the freedom to easily migrate data to a different platform at any time.

Paul Speciale, chief marketing officer,Scalitysaid: "It’s extremely encouraging to see that such a high number of organisations in the US as well as Europe are taking datasovereigntyseriously and have plans in place, including a significant shift toward hybrid-cloud strategies. This can certainly help organisations prevent cloud lock-in and provide safety in having data stored locally or in multiple locations. The surprisingly high results in the US could be due to growing concerns regarding China’s strength in technology development.”

In the survey,detailed further in this blog,IT decision makers from several industries including manufacturing, telecom, professional services, financial services, and retail, were asked:“To what extent does your organisation havesovereigntyregulations or policies in place to keep your data in specific locations (e.g., local, in specific countries or regions)?”Respondents that currently have or are planningsovereigntyregulations to keep data in specific locations were asked:“How are you primarily storing or planning to store the data?”

Key findings in the UK include:

  1. 82% of UK respondents have already adopted datasovereigntypolicies, and 13% have plans to do so; 5% do not plan to implement them, and are most likely to come from a smaller sized organisation (1,000-2,999 employees)
  2. In the UK, organisations from the IT, technology, and telecoms sector (92%), the business and professional services sector (90%), and the financial services sector (88%) are most likely to already have policies in place
  3. Manufacturing organisations are significantly behind the UK average of 82%, with 62% having policies in place, while 31% have plans to implement them
  4. To implement datasovereigntypolicies, 33% of UK respondents (will) use a large public cloud service, 42% a hybrid cloud, 14% a regional service provider, and 12% an on-premises data centre
  5. UK respondents from smaller organisations (1,000-2,999 employees) compared to larger organisations (3,000+ employees) are significantly more likely to select a public cloud service (45% vs 25%), and less likely to select a hybrid cloud (32% vs 49%).

nxtedition unveils virtual assets delivering consolidated workflow API integrations

With virtual assets, nxtedition has solved a significant headache for the media industry by simplifying how different product APIs from different vendors can be deeply integrated into nxtedition. Successfully deploying other products to their full potential can be challenging for a traditional broadcaster. Typically, these integrations are highly technical API calls held together by infrastructure solutions – referred to as glue – which can be fragile and difficult to maintain.
