Microsoft Corps head lawyer has suggested that overseas customers will be allowed to have their personal data stored in non-U.S. data centers, the Financial Times reported on Wednesday. A Microsoft spokesperson declined further comment on the remarks that Brad Smith, Microsofts general counsel, made to the comments to the Financial Times, which published them on Wednesday. People should have the ability to know whether their data are being subjected to the laws and access of governments in some other country and should have the ability to make an informed choice of where their data resides, Smith told the FT. He went on to say that customers could choose where to have their data stored in Microsofts wide network of data centers, for example Europeans could specify a facility in Ireland.
