Customers of software vendors with multiple global data centers can more easily comply with regional data protection and privacy requirements by hosting their data in their preferred geographic region.
The Benefits of Multiple Data Center Locations
In today’s fast-paced world, software vendors need to offer their customers the ability to quickly and efficiently access the information they need. End users need to be able to access data from anywhere in the world, and they need to be able to do it securely.
Deploying software applications to a global user base presents both technical and legal issues for vendors. Providing users in multiple continents with reliable access to an application entails the same requirements as a localized user base, but with added concerns such as latency and network performance impacting application response time.
Despite these challenges, there are many benefits of deploying multiple data centers to support enterprise applications. Having multiple global locations allows for an increase in performance and high availability for applications and services. This is achieved through redundancy, which enables alternative pathways for data between servers. Such measures ensure uninterrupted access to applications and data for customers, employees and business partners.
End users can also benefit from faster data transfer speeds. Transferring data from one center to another is much faster than transferring it over the internet, as data centers are connected via dedicated lines. This means customers can access their data with minimal latency, with no need to wait for the data to travel over the internet.
There is also the increased security that comes with having multiple data centers. Data centers are generally highly secure environments, as they are designed to protect data from malicious hacking attempts. Having multiple data centers in different regions provides software vendors with an extra layer of protection, as it is much more difficult for a hacker to gain access to multiple data centers at the same time.
Keeper’s Global Data Center Network
Keeper Security maintains an established network of data centers in the United States, Europe, Australia and GovCloud (US) regions. Most recently, it launched two new cloud data centers in Canada and Japan, powered by Amazon Web Services (AWS). Keeper offers more data center locations than any of its competitors. Enterprise customers can store their vaults and data in the global location of their choice, and still benefit from Keeper’s fully isolated, zero-knowledge cybersecurity solution.
Keeper’s multiple data center strategy makes it simpler for organizations to comply with regional data protection and privacy requirements by supporting data residency. This term refers to the localization of data storage and processing, and is necessary to adhere to privacy laws within particular countries or broader multi-national regulations, such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Keeper’s expanding international presence offers advantageous results for all of its customers, ranging from individual users to large companies and public administrations. With additional data centers, Keeper is capable of delivering content closer to customers, which leads to faster performance and fewer delays for users and businesses in these areas.
