Learn more about these key cloud transparency issues for startups
One of the most important cloud issues is ensuring compliance with the EU GDPR and non-European laws such as the US CLOUD Act. Falling foul of these laws can result in fines and reputational damage. Full transparency regarding the location of your data in the cloud is vital to retaining control and ensuring compliance.
Just over a third (34%) of SMEs admit they overspent on their cloud bills last year. A lack of billing transparency, complex pricing structures and unplanned cloud adoptions are the main causes of this overspend. That’s why it’s vital that startups understand how to identify and avoid potential pricing traps before committing to a cloud provider.
With digital transformation taking hold across all industries, organisations are turning to the cloud to give them the flexibility and scalability to rapidly pivot and adjust to new market demands and pressures. Business spending on public cloud is set to grow 23.1% in 2021 to $332.3 billion according to Gartner. Yet there are still some common fears and misconceptions about public cloud. We bust those myths to show why public cloud is a viable, secure and cost-effective option to scale quickly and drive growth for many startups.
Privacy Shield was created to replace the Safe Harbor scheme and allow the transfer of personal data from the EU to the US. But in July 2020, the Court of Justice of the EU invalidated Privacy Shield on the basis that the US government large-scale surveillance programmes do not comply with the EU’s principles of necessity and proportionality. What does this mean for your cloud provider and your data?
