Re: So Microsoft, who gets to see all that data then
There are enough cloud telephone exchange VOIP PBXs out there at the moment. No problems with EU in doing that.
We looked at it last year, but it worked out about 4 times more expensive per year than going with our exsiting telco and a local software VOIP-PBX!
Given that MS are opening co-hosted data centers in Germany to get around Safe Harbour - data stays in Europe and is under the care of local providers, MS and its employees have no direct access to the servers or data.
