To meet data residency regulations governing Banking, Financial and Insurance (BFSI) industry, Public sector undertakings, Government Institutions etc., organisations have so far been mostly deploying an on-premise IT infrastructure. As a result, they’ve had to deal with issues of security, reliability, provisioning upfront for projected workloads, managing change, monitoring, and many other limitations in creating a mission-critical infrastructure on-premise.
Shifting to the cloud could help their IT departments gain from the efficiency, security, reliability, scalability and OPEX model of IaaS (Infrastructure as a service) on the cloud to carry mission-critical workloads and data
But as more data gets stored in the cloud, across borders, governments are becoming more concerned about access to data for their statutory bodies. A blanket ban on the use of cloud would be detrimental to business efficiencies. So, governments have been issuing directives and policies on the use of cloud with data conditions of residency, to break through the logjam.
Earlier last year, Ministry of Electronics and IT had issued directives to the government departments, which are using cloud computing technology, to store all the data within the country.
The Maharashtra Government has gone further and announced a public cloud policy virtually mandating its departments to move their data storage onto the cloud (with adequate safeguards) in order to enable public institutions to take advantage of the benefits cloud technologies has to offer.
