The announcement of our AnyCloud architecture has a significant relevance for cloud computing specifically in Europe and, more generally, for all the regions of the world. Since the cloud is supposed to be global and borderless by nature, why would AnyCloud matter more to some countries or regions than to others? In short, if your product or service is digital and can be delivered on the Internet, you just have to put it online and the world will come to you, right? Well, not so fast…we strongly believe that the ability to reach out to the whole world does not mean that you should ignore local requirements. In this blog, I discuss how AnyCloud provides the flexibility to address a number of implementation issues, from regulations to technical issues, to security concerns and company policies.
