Where is your cloud data stored?

Hi folks! So with the sheer volume of cloud providers out there it’s easy to get signed up on a new service and get carried away with all the benefits and features of the cloud. But the question everyone should be asking is, where is your data?

For example for those of you that live in different countries, are you ok with where your data is being stored where it can be subject to a foreign countries search and seizure laws? Often people don’t think about these things and only realize it when it’s too late to do anything about it.

When you sign up with a cloud provider make sure you ask all of these questions so you know your data is safe!
