Ospero launches 'Distribution as a Service' data privacy

London, UK, January 25, 2012 -- Global Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) firm, Ospero, is proud to announce the launch of its new 'Distribution as a Service' (DaaS) offering, to mark the fifth annual International Data Privacy Day on 28 January 2012.

With EC Justice Commissioner Viviane Redings' 'Privacy by Design' ethos at its heart, Ospero's new DaaS offering will help the software industry prepare for forthcoming changes to the European Commission Data Directive to be announced in Q1 2012 by Viviane Reding.

The Ospero DaaS platform is aimed at SaaS, ISVs and Open Source vendors who want and need to embrace local Data Protection acts in order to comply in jurisdictions outside of their own domestic markets.
The platform was created using the Ospero ‘6pillars’ methodology, which embraces the core principles of :-

- Security
- Sovereignty
- Service
- Scale
- Speed
- Simplicity

Jason Currill, CEO of Ospero, commented “Since the advent of the cloud, geopolitical barriers have been all but eliminated and the various data protection acts – most of which were formed before SaaS, the cloud and in some cases even before email - are now woefully inadequate to cope with global data privacy and sovereignty concerns we see today.”

Ospero recognises these issues and have created a global grid of ubiquitous data centres located in key business hubs across EMEA, North America and Asia Pac - running best of breed VMware and VCE Vblocks, all accessed through a single management portal.

Mr Currill added, “We designed the Ospero vGrid (OvG) to allow vendors to eliminate as many barriers to the adoption of their technologies as possible. By using the OvG DaaS platform, not only are SaaS vendors lowering latency and data transmission costs, they are also alleviating psychological and legal barriers to adoption.”

Ospero explains that above the SMB space in most countries outside North America Mid Market and Enterprise, customers are hesitant to invest in SaaS based platforms because of the complex legal landscape around the issue of where the data resides. Now, with the Ospero DaaS platform software companies can deploy their application in over 19 countries in four continents. As usual, they just pay for what they use and manage their global estate through a single portal. Ospero also operates a single global SLA and typical 24x7x365 support.

“We believe the upcoming amendments to the European Commission’s Data Directive will have similar effect on the IT industry as Sarbanes Oxley had on the Finance industry,” explained Mr Currill. “Customers are aware of this and SaaS vendors who plan ahead for these amendments and utilise a DaaS model to sell their offerings will not only be complying with changing legislative landscape, but signalling to their customers and partners they genuinely take data privacy and sovereignty seriously.”
