A last-minute arrival before the launch was ZettaBox, which itself only opened for business in June, aiming to profit from restrictions in some European countries on where data can be hosted. The tearing up of the Safe Harbor Agreement came as a bonus.
"Cloud28+ was a logical community for Zettabox to join as their mission is to build a cohesive and collaborative cloud environment, for Europeans by Europeans," said James Kinsella, founder and CEO of Zettabox.
Concern about data sovereignty is unlikely to be just a passing fad: The European Commission hopes to have a new Safe Harbor Agreement in place early in the new year, but there are concerns that the court that struck down the previous one may not have said its last word in the matter.
