Blizzard "Juno" – Winter Storm threatens german stored at US cloud service providers
(Bochum, 26. Januar 2015) If winter storm "Juno" hits the US-Coast, it will not only be a challenge for the population located in that area, further more it is also a dangerous threat for the disaster recovery plans of many US Data Centers, cloud storage provider and businesses located in that area. Even in the broader area of New York an North Carolina, more than 150 relevant data centers are existing. Besides cloud service providers like Amazon, you will also find data centers from Apple, Facebook and Google.
This fact is also a challenge for german companies and hoseholds, which do store data via cloud services in US-based data centers. The experts of KUERT Data Recovery Germany do recommend to create full backups of all data which has been outsourced to the cloud for secure reasons, before the storm hits the US coast.
