Amazon and Google Barred From UK Government Cloud by Soulskill
judgecorp writes “Amazon and Google both applied for a role in the U.K. government’s ‘G-Cloud’ for public services, but were rejected, a FOI request has revealed. It is most likely this was because of concerns about where data was hosted and backed up. Amazon Web Services has a dedicated cloud service for the government in the U.S., but has not been able to duplicate that in Britain.”
