Philippine-based Cloud Provider addresses Data sovereignty concerns

DataOne Asia

Cloud computing is one of the strongest forces shaping the world of technology today, pushing the transformation of many local industries and services—in terms of streamlining business processes and even providing disaster recovery solutions.

Despite the country’s progress in cloud computing, there are still two areas of concern preventing a faster adoption of the service: data sovereignty and client data privacy.

“Data sovereignty refers to the concept of digital information being subject to the laws of the country on which it is located,” said Cyril Rocke, President and CEO of DataOne Asia during Softech.PH, The Philippine Engineering Conference.

This means that Data hosted by a cloud provider in the USA for instance, could be accessed, without your prior knowledge, by the authorities in that country.

Cloud providers are legally obliged to share the data of their clients if the authorities of host country request it, making it a great risk for those who have their data stored in other countries.”

Fortunately, there is now a solution that can take this challenge out of the equation, and give more clients reason to switch to cloud. The answer: a Philippine-based cloud.

Solving data sovereignty issues
The current global cloud-computing scene still lacks international consistency, in terms of data protection. Regulations are still being defined and there is lack of clarity in the jurisdiction of laws as applied to data.

These are the challenges addressed by DataOne, with its cloud facilities and Tier-3 data centers in Quezon City. Being a local provider, domestic regulatory compliance is no longer an issue with the cloud provider as its services are under the protection of Philippine Data Privacy Law.

Furthermore, DataOne also offers 24-7 customer support via phone and email, high-grade infrastructure, and high-performance storage. Moreover, its clients can be rest assured of having an experienced service provider that provides prompt and secure service, with more than 12 years in providing technology services to banks, government and enterprises. For those not ready to move to cloud yet, DataOne also offers colocation services that give users a dedicated environment where they can manage all their hardware, software, and other infrastructure.

Designed for mission-critical enterprise workloads
A sense of assurance is something all enterprises need—most especially those dealing with mission-critical enterprise workloads.

Mission-critical workloads are solutions that support all the integral parts of a business. These are among the most demanding types of applications and include databases and services for ERP, Finance, and Logistics. With the global reach of businesses today, these workloads need to be available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

For its part, DataOne has high-tech infrastructure engineered for these workloads with 99.99% uptime. It has an extensive range of application support, such as Exchange, SharePoint, Dynamics, and SAP.

For easier access, DataOne offers Platform as an option (similar to Microsoft’s SQL Server) to support the most demanding enterprise workloads and MySQL Server, which can accommodate mission-critical and heavy-load production systems.

“Downtime and loose security are not options for mission-critical workloads. Even just a few minutes of outage can have a ripple effect throughout the organization and hinder business continuity. In an era of globalization and the mobile-cloud, having a wide scope, solid security, and easy accessibility is everything,” finished Rocke.
