Charlotte’s Web is not dead but it’s not dead enough
A web-hosting company in the UK is hoping to get its customers’ data transferred to a new server in the US by 2021, after a federal judge ruled that the company was too small to meet a new requirement for a data centre.
The company, called Cloudflare, said it was “working to achieve the milestone” and that it had “many more months to go”.
The court order requires Cloudflared to be at least twice as big as it is today and was issued on Wednesday in California.
Cloudflares website says that in the coming years, it will use its “technology to provide secure, reliable and scalable cloud computing services to businesses of all sizes and geographies, from Fortune 500 companies to local governments, health care providers, universities and local government offices”.
In October last year, the US National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) said that it was creating a new national standard for internet service providers, but Cloudflas data centre will not meet the requirements until 2021.
NTIA said in November that it would “continue to work with providers to develop a regulatory framework for cloud computing”.
The NTIA’s website said that the new standards would allow providers to “provide cloud computing and services to customers at scale, and in a way that respects the rights of consumers, without sacrificing consumer protection”.
“We have been working to achieve this milestone for many months and are very proud of the progress we have made so far. “
“In the coming months, we will be working with NTIA and other stakeholders to finalise the standards and provide them with guidance on how to implement them in the future.” “
Cloudflash.com, the new provider, has a cloud-based solution that allows users to upload and download data to and from Cloudflashes servers. “

It said it has been “working closely with our customers” and would continue to improve the service.
The new server will be located at a “smaller footprint than the existing Cloudflaticas” and will allow the company to scale faster and with “fewer servers”, it said.
It will also have “a single point of failure for data”, which means that “cloud-based data centre services will not be required for large data volumes”.
Cloudflaclasts founder and CEO, Sam Nadella, told The Register: “Cloudflares is not a company in a coma.

This will allow us to significantly scale our cloud services and we will also be able to offer faster speeds and support for our customers in many more cities and countries.”

The move comes after Cloudflusters CEO Nadellas announcement in September that the US Federal Communications Commission had rejected a request by the internet company for the new data centres to be located in smaller cities and towns.
CloudFlare has been fighting against the net neutrality rules that prevent internet service companies from blocking or slowing access to websites or charging for preferential treatment.
Net neutrality is a set of rules intended to prevent internet providers from discriminating against some types of traffic or charging more to access certain content or applications.
The Federal Communications Commissioner has previously said that internet service businesses must follow net neutrality, and the rules should not be changed in order to allow internet providers to slow or block access to content.
The latest move is seen by some as a blow to net neutrality advocates.
“They are trying to do the FCC’s job, and it’s going to cost them,” Markos Moulitsas, a lawyer at the libertarian Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI), told the Register.
“Net neutrality is going to die.”
Mr Moulititsas said that Mr Nadello’s decision to move the data centre to the city of San Jose was an “ambitious goal” and was in line with what the FCC had previously said.
He added: “I think the FCC is well on its way to achieving its goal, which is to ensure that internet providers have to abide by net neutrality and that no one is unfairly charged for the ability to access the internet.”
Mr Nadeslaw said that if the new Cloudflast data centre was located in a city where it would be easier to deliver services, the move would help the company “to scale faster”.
