This article will cover data privacy in the data center, looking at both the drivers keeping personal data on-prem, the challenges to meeting data privacy regulations in the data center, and show how NetApp Cloud Data Sense’s new support for NetApp appliances and on-prem databases can massively reduce the burden of compliance for on-prem deployments.
