Data Residency with Vultr: Ensuring Privacy, Security, and Compliance
May 16, 2024

In today's digital landscape, understanding the whereabouts and handling of your data is more crucial than ever. Data residency – where your data is stored, who can access it, and how it's utilized – plays a pivotal role in maintaining data privacy, security, and compliance with evolving regulations.

The regulatory landscape surrounding data privacy is constantly changing, with laws and regulations emerging worldwide. For businesses operating across borders, compliance with these regulations is not just a good practice; it's a necessity. Ensuring compliance instills trust in consumers and customers, demonstrating a commitment to keeping their data safe and secure.

In addition, safeguarding your data also means ensuring the resiliency of business operations by providing real-time access to fail-over systems and backups for disaster recovery. Securing offsite backups is essential in the face of escalating ransomware threats. These backups, stored in third-party locations unaffected by infections, safeguard against data loss and mitigate the impact of cyberattacks.

Only one cloud provider covers all of these bases: Vultr.

Vultr: A champion of data privacy

Since its inception in 2014, Vultr has been at the forefront of prioritizing data privacy, protection, and control. With a steadfast commitment to keeping data private and secure, we offer encrypted storage, ensuring data remains protected during transit and at rest.

Empowering data residency

At Vultr, data residency lies at the core of our infrastructure philosophy. Unlike some hyperscalers, where data might be processed or transmitted outside your chosen location, Vultr puts you in control. Your data stays where you put it, without the risk of being moved elsewhere without your consent.

Ensuring maximum compliance

Vultr's approach to data residency ensures maximum compliance with data privacy regulations. By keeping data within its country of origin, we mitigate the risk of being subjected to other jurisdictions' laws. Whether enabling HIPAA compliance in the United States or GDPR compliance in the European Union, Vultr assures that your data remains within the appropriate legal boundaries.

Sovereign clouds for enhanced control

For businesses seeking even greater control over their data, Vultr offers sovereign clouds on request. These dedicated environments ensure that data remains resident within the chosen country while also enabling processing with our comprehensive line of compute and GPU instances.

Third-location backups for redundancy

Vultr's data residency solutions extend beyond primary storage, offering geographically dispersed third-location backups. This redundancy minimizes the risk of data loss and provides an additional layer of protection against unforeseen circumstances.

Putting data first

In today's data-driven economy, managing data responsibly is paramount. With Vultr's unwavering focus on data residency, businesses can rest assured that their data remains safe, secure, and compliant. By empowering businesses with control over their data's whereabouts and ensuring adherence to privacy regulations, we enable innovation, foster customer trust, and provide peace of mind in an increasingly complex digital landscape.
