press calls in the last month about the issue. I have been invited to speak at AIIM's Trade Meeting in London on 10 October on the matter, and Oracle yesterday announced it is opening not one, but TWO, data centres in Germany (#oow14) to add to the three it already has in Europe.
The 'growing demand' in Oracle's press release is not just about capacity, but also a recognition that from the implementation of the Regulation, data storage in the cloud, about EU citizens, outside the EU's boundaries, will be both a business risk and potentially a competitive disadvantage.
Businesses and organisations need to start taking action now. The recent AIIM report is a good 'primer'.
