In this presentation, I will discuss the challenges faced by global organizations in sharing and synchronizing data on a large scale between multiple geographic sites and across heterogeneous platforms and operating systems. I will discuss the results of some global experiments conducted between 2004 and 2014 between the US, Europe, Africa and Asia. We will learn about the legal and technical challenges faced by the systems and the operations staff. Issues such as reliability, industrial espionage, ISP bandwidth control, state controls and content censures will also be discussed.
