Salesforce set to open UK data centre

World class CRM vendor Salesforce.com are to open a data centre in the UK to add to its growing base of European data centres and to support its bid to win more government work.

Concerns have been raised in the past about where a companys’ data is physically stored and processed when using Cloud services because it it not permissible under European Law to process data outside of the European Economic Area without undertaking a series of steps. It is actually a lot easier for UK organisations to “export data” than it is for organisations with operations in many of our European neighbours but all of that is set to change next year with the new Data Protection Regulation.

As a Salesforce.com partner we were delighted with the news.
