The expansion of SMB Solutions Cloud Services by opening an in-country data center in North America and offering our No Limits SAP Business One Cloud Platform represents a significant step forward for our company, our customers, and SAP Business One Partners in the region.

We have made this decision for several reasons, including delivering enhanced data sovereignty, improved performance and increased choice for customers and partners’ competition.


Enhanced Data Sovereignty

With data privacy and security concerns at an all-time high, the establishment of a local data center for SAP Business One Cloud Hosting by SMB Solutions Cloud Services in North America addresses critical issues of data sovereignty and compliance.

Data sovereignty refers to the concept that digital data is subject to the laws of the country in which it is stored.

By storing data locally, we can ensure that our shared customers’ information is protected under North American laws, which can be particularly reassuring for businesses concerned about the implications of the GDPR in Europe or other international data protection regulations. This local approach to data storage makes it easier for businesses to comply with these regulations, reducing legal complexities and risks.

Plus, SMB Solutions SOC2 compliance makes us the natural choice for partners and customers in North America looking for a certified hosting provider where security and compliance come first.


Improved Performance

The presence of a data center within North America will provide significant performance improvements for users.

We currently host multiple customers from North America and Latin America from our Equinix data centers in Australia and Germany with no concerns about speed or availability, data latency, or the delay before a data transfer begins following an instruction for its transfer. However, this delay will still be reduced when the physical distance between a user and the data centre is minimized.

This means faster access to services and data, improved load times, and a better overall user experience. These improvements are crucial for businesses that rely on cloud services for operations, including e-commerce, online services, and digital communication platforms.


More Choices for Customers and Partners

SMB Solutions Cloud Services’ establishment of a new data center location will increase competition in the North American SAP Business One cloud services market.

This provides customers and partners with more innovative solutions, better customer service options, and more competitive pricing for state-of-the-art cloud services.

An increase in options empowers consumers and businesses to choose solutions that best fit their needs, potentially driving the entire SAP Business One ecosystem industry forward as companies strive to differentiate themselves and make the most of their SAP investments.


In Summary

So, of course, we think that the opening of a data center in North America by SMB Solutions Cloud Services is a multifaceted positive development. It addresses critical needs for data sovereignty and performance, stimulates competition, and provides greater choice for partners and customers in the North American market.

As the digital landscape continues to evolve, these investments are crucial for fostering a resilient, dynamic, and competitive SAP Business One Cloud product and community.
