Cloud computing has been going from strength to strength for years now with pretty small barriers to success, however there could be a huge proverbial curve-ball thrown in the way of its success in the near future. Apparently some countries were “placing geographic restrictions on data and considering other limits on outsourcing of work”which basically means that nations are restricting the spread of cloud computing and stopping it from succeeding as it should. This is frustrating to some countries who have invested millions upon millions of dollars in developing their own cloud computing systems with the eventual hope of producing a global cloud network which would help IT developments worldwide. There are establishments fighting to prevent the inhibiting of cloud computing such as the BSA (Business Software Alliance) as they understand how beneficial cloud computing can be to each and every firm on the planet. Cloud computing allows for easy access to and sharing of information anywhere, even while on the move, which is like nothing we’ve seen before, at least not on a global scale. The BSA cited the European Union’s proposed “Data Protection Regulation” which it said “has the potential to undermine its benefits with new, overly prescriptive rules”, and basically poses a great threat to the success of cloud computing.
