Start­ing today, Adobe’s Lon­don data cen­ter is avail­able to new cus­tomers of the Online Mar­ket­ing Suite. This not only low­ers net­work latency for Euro­pean com­pa­nies, but also keeps the data stored on Euro­pean soil, as desired by many clients con­cerned about Euro­pean pri­vacy regulation.

While this is great news for Adobe’s new cus­tomers, you’re prob­a­bly won­der­ing about the cur­rent set of Euro­pean Omni­ture gurus? When can you migrate your data to the new data cen­ter? And why would a Euro­pean com­pany choose not to be in the Euro­pean data cen­ter? These ques­tions and answers may help.

Q. Can I setup some report suites in the Euro­pean data cen­ter, but keep oth­ers in another data center?

A. The short answer: no. The long answer: not really. For a pile of rea­sons, our strong rec­om­men­da­tion is to keep your company’s data within a sin­gle data cen­ter. Ask an imple­men­ta­tion con­sul­tant or Client­Care for details.

Q. Is this related to or affected by Regional Data Collection?

A. No. Regional Data Col­lec­tion con­nects your site’s vis­i­tors with the clos­est data col­lec­tion cen­ter, regard­less of the data pro­cess­ing cen­ter loca­tion. If that data pro­cess­ing cen­ter is in Europe, vis­i­tors in Japan will be send­ing image requests to our Tokyo data col­lec­tion cen­ter, while vis­i­tors in Florida will send data to our East­ern US data center.

Q. When can I migrate from another data cen­ter to the EMEA data center?

A. Now that the new data cen­ter is run­ning smoothly, our next objec­tive is to pro­vide a migra­tion option for Euro­pean com­pa­nies. Keep an eye on this blog for announcements.

Good questions and answers. Are there any updates on the migration options for European companies?
