Cloudflare launches Data Localization Suite in Asia

Cloudflare, Inc. announced that Cloudflare’s Data Localization Suite (DLS) is now available in three new countries in the Asia Pacific region: Australia, India, and Japan. The Data Localization Suite will help businesses based in these countries, as well as global companies who do business in these countries, to comply with their data localization obligations by using Cloudflare to easily set rules and controls on where their domestic data goes and who has access to it. This ultimately allows any business with customers in these countries to service their data locally while benefiting from the speed, security, and scalability of Cloudflare’s global network.

Businesses in Australia, India, and Japan can use Cloudflare’s Data Localization Suite to:

  • Control where traffic is serviced: Companies can choose the data center locations where their traffic is inspected.
  • Build and deploy serverless code, with regional control: Build applications that allow developers to combine global performance with local compliance regulations.
  • Use Cloudflare’s security features to protect their web properties.
  • Align with global and regional security certifications: Businesses can trust that they are compliant with global privacy and security certifications like ISO 27001, 27701, and 27018.

Opinion / Analysis

AI scientists are studying the “emergent” abilities of large language models

I was fascinated with emergent properties in grad school, and argued for their relevance and value when “big data” became a thing. It’s good to see a disciplined look at emergence in large language models. Ben Dickson’s useful summary of a new study includes helpful background links. (6 min).

Imaging the web with Scalable Vector Graphics

Being a good data visualization artist does not necessarily require strong artistic skills, but it does depend upon understanding the tools and technologies that are out there. Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) is becoming an essential technology in the data space, useful for building maps and charts that can work well on the web, creating detailed diagrams with rich metadata, and even laying the foundation for effective data presentations to clients or customers. SVG really is the foundation for intelligent graphics.

SVG has been around for a long time, but as Kurt Cagle points out in this excellent piece, it is still unknown to many and under-utilized. (11 min).
