    MS to Host Data in Germany to Block the US from Spying on Its Users

    Customers will have to pay extra for the German storage

    Microsoft’s getting ready to take the fight with the United States government over user data to a completely new level, as the company is ready to turn to data centers in Germany in order to block American agencies from snooping in on customers.

    CEO Satya Nadella announced at a press conference in Berlin that Microsoft would operate new data centers in the country with help from Deutsche Telekom, which basically means that a German company will be in charge of information stored on German servers, so any inquiry to access user details are subjected to local laws.

    Microsoft is one of the companies fighting against the United States government’s struggle to access customer data stored overseas, with one particular case still ongoing. US intelligence agencies are seeking information about a Microsoft customer whose information is stored on Irish servers, but Redmond has denied the request, claiming that a search warrant issued by the United States is only valid in the country and cannot be used in any other state.
