Export controls place restrictions on the export of software and technology in the USA and they play a significant role in foreign policy and national security. Imagine that you are a CIO at a U.S.-based international shoe manufacturing company. You are ready to make the change to a geographically distributed cloud-based computing model, but have some reservations as they relate to security, policy, and redundancy. Your primary goal is to address these issues as you maintain redundant services with 99.999% availability to your international Web customers, retailers, and manufacturing operations. It has been recommended that you read “Addressing Export Control in the Age of Cloud Computing”, located at http://www.brookings.edu/~/media/research/files/papers/2011/7/25 cloud computing villasenor/0725_cloud_computing_villasenor.
