It can be observed that when the Cloud provider is in a different jurisdiction than your company, this may impact your business (legal requirements of data protection, availability).

Factors to look at:

  • disaster recovery
  • provider’s track record of incidents affecting availability, data integrity and data protection
  • customer service quality
