Storage special: Just can’t get enough

by Rick Turoczy on October 11, 2006

In the US, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 has affected US multinationals wherever they operate around the globe. Jeff Rodwell, head of IT at law firm Reed Smith in the UK, says, “People are becoming aware it is the retrieval of storage that is really important.”

The area that really interests lawyers is where there are different requirements in different jurisdictions. A corporation cannot simply divide its data up if it has regional servers, but needs a common set of data to satisfy different laws.

“I do not know of any multinational that has one server per country, because it is antithetical to any contingency planning,” says Rodwell. “Multinational CIOs need to have a global perspective. One of our clients, for example, has to review 43 countries.”
