The Domestic Cloud Service Provider “falls under a country’s local jurisdiction, ensuring cloud services are compliant with local regulations and sovereignty requirements. In other words, the cloud service provider is intrinsically sovereign due its origin.” – Gartner®
On December 27, 2022, Gartner released an updated independent market research on sovereign cloud offerings in Europe with the title of “Product Manager Insight: Three Cloud Deployment Models to Address Your Customers’ Key Sovereignty Requirements” where they underline three different approaches that customers can leverage to meet or partially meet their sovereignty requirements: through Global Cloud Service Providers, Global Cloud Service Providers with Domestic Partners, or Domestic Cloud Service Providers.
In our understanding of their research, Gartner highlights 3 important aspects about cloud sovereignty:
1) justified concerns about foreign (outside Europe) access to critical data, in particular for governmental and highly regulated industries, which translates in growing desire for cloud sovereignty;
2) Cloud sovereignty to be defined across 3 dimensions, Data, Operational and Technology sovereignty; and
3) three typologies of cloud offerings capable of addressing sovereignty requirements at a different extent.
At Tietoevry we are excited to see that Tietoevry is recognized as one of the examples of Domestic Cloud Service Providers in Europe.
If you want to know more about the Tietoevry offering in the sovereignty cloud domain, please reach out.
