XiaoMi moves User Data out of China
XiaoMi is a company that has only been around for four years but in this short span of time, it has managed to become the largest smartphone company in China. The next step is obviously, to expand outside of Asia and it looks like that’s exactly what the tech giant is doing by migrating international user data outside of China.
By moving data centers, XiaoMi ensures improvement in customer experiences as data centers are more accessible and closer by to customers. Hence, consumers get solutions and assistance fast and precise. By ensuring these standards are high, XiaoMi stays true to its business model which helps keep upfront costs of the company’s products low.
By placing international user data outside China, XiaoMi is also reducing concerns over data privacy and unsanctioned information sharing. This helps greatly to boost the image of the company as it has been already caught in a relevant scandal that involved the tech tycoon sharing data with a server in China without consent and subsequently offered customers a way to opt out.
The company is looking to work with local providers in other regions to ensure faster connections. International MIUI services will be mainly in Amazon AWS data centers in Oregon USA and Singapore.
