Choosing the Right Cloud for Data Sovereignty

Sep 24, 2022

September 24, 2022 - Advertisement - As recently spotted in VMware Explore US, Sovereign Cloud continues to gain momentum. Sovereign cloud business is projected to have TAM $60B by 2025, due in no small part to rapid growth in data privacy laws (145 countries currently have data privacy laws) and the complexity of compliance in highly regulated industries - Advertisement - As the need to monetize data grows and nations seek to realize the true value of data, VMware is providing our Sovereign Cloud status: Sovereign Security, Sovereign Compliance, Sovereign Control, Sovereign Autonomy and Sovereign Innovation. - Advertisement - Previously, we looked at what data sovereignty is and how it affects business operations when it comes to personal, sensitive or classified data. Now let’s see how an organization can better comply with data sovereignty laws by choosing the right cloud architecture. Most businesses have moved to cloud computing for at least some of their data. The cloud offers greater flexibility, scale, and computational power than traditional on-premises data centers. While public clouds are popular for their high capacity and low cost, some organizations have begun to move data out of them to comply with regulations. 81% of decision makers in regulated industries have backed some or all of their data and workloads from the public cloud. Some have moved data back on-premises, while others are using a mix of public and private clouds. Ultimately, protecting and realizing national data has never been a more important factor in building the cloud. By combining rising country regulations: the US Cloud Act, the EU’s GDPR, China’s personal information protection law compliance with data privacy laws in 132 countries and with an annual growth of ~10%, choosing the right data sovereignty solution has become a hot topic. The topic is gone. - Advertisement - To understand why a business might choose one cloud model over another, let’s look at common types of cloud architecture: Public – On-demand computing services and infrastructure are managed by a third-party provider and shared with multiple organizations using the public Internet. Public clouds are usually multi-tenant, meaning that many clients share the same server, although it is divided to prevent unauthorized access. Public clouds offer mass at a low cost. Private – The infrastructure is dedicated to a single user organization. A private cloud can be hosted either in an organization’s own data center, in a third-party facility, or through a private cloud provider. Private clouds are generally more secure than public due to limited access and can meet regulatory requirements such as data privacy and sovereignty. However, they require more resources to install and maintain. Community – Shared cloud that is integrated to connect multiple organizations or employees for collaboration. It can be several private clouds connected together to facilitate the exchange of data. They are often used by regulated industries where public clouds are not compliant, but they are complicated to set up because of the many groups involved. Government – ​​a type of private or community cloud designed specifically for government bodies to maintain sovereignty and control multi-cloud – using multiple public clouds to take advantage of different features. An organization may host some services in one cloud and others with a different provider. This model has the highest level of security risk due to the amount of data and access. Hybrid – A mix of public and private clouds. The term is also sometimes used to refer to a mix of public cloud and on-premises private data centers. While public clouds are suitable for public information that is not subject to data sovereignty laws, overall compliance requires a hybrid or other more private solution. Private clouds can meet data sovereignty requirements, but they require dedicated data centers, which are operated either by the organization or through a provider that uses dedicated hardware. This can be costly and time consuming. Fastest or Closest Solution Solutions may not include the level of security or compliance required to be sovereign. The major factors under consideration are jurisdiction control, local oversight, data portability and adaptability to name a few. Sovereign Cloud is an option specially designed to meet the data sovereignty requirements. Think of it as a semi-private cloud, combining some of the best features of public and private. They are operated by experienced cloud providers who are small, local, multi-tenant operations. A sovereign cloud provides the data sovereignty benefits of a private cloud without the IT headaches. Sovereign cloud can be used in conjunction with public cloud as part of hybrid cloud architecture. Subject to data sovereignty laws, data and services will reside in the sovereign cloud while non-sensitive data and services may reside in the public cloud. The exchange of data between these clouds must be carefully controlled to ensure compliance. When it comes to finding a sovereign cloud provider, adaptability, flexibility, and frictionless implementation are key. You must be able to audit operations and access to ensure compliance. Local, self-verified sovereign cloud providers can correctly implement and build residency requirements to meet data residency and sovereignty requirements. Cross-border restrictions and jurisdictional controls should also be understood, addressing privacy concerns without remote processing of data. At the end of the day, true sovereignty ensures that other jurisdictions are incapable of property rights over data stored beyond national borders; Promote national data interest and development. True sovereign cloud requires a higher level of security and risk management for data and metadata than a normal public cloud. Metadata, or information about the data such as IP addresses or host names, must be protected along with the data itself. VMware Sovereign Cloud Providers provide transparency around security measures, both cybersecurity protection and physical security in the data center.
