Even the largest global companies have challenges operating across multiple countries, moving and storing data and navigating multiple jurisdictions. In the globalised digital economy, data can flow across borders in milliseconds. But the legal frameworks governing this data vary widely from one jurisdiction to another. If the UK, Europe and the US are characterised by robust data protection laws, so are many other countries, including the Nordics, Australia, India and China, to name a few.

The Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) is investigating the state of the UK cloud market, and for good reason. While the submissions and commentary already submitted to the CMA point to various concerning practices, one issue stands out as the single biggest threat to a healthy, competitive landscape: excessive free cloud credits. This tactic, employed by the dominant hyperscalers (AWS, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform), is akin to a drug dealer offering free samples.
