TikTok, which does not fall off the agenda with claims about security and privacy, prefers Europe for its data center. With this center, TikTok will strengthen its relations with Europe.
TikTok data center strategy
In the recent period, the USA and European countries have almost waged war against China-based practices. TikTok, one of the most popular social media platforms in the world, is among those negatively affected by this attitude.
TikTok, which does not want to lose users in the USA and Europe, continues on its way with a different strategy. ByteDance, the umbrella company of TikTok, decided to establish a data center in Europe for this purpose. In this decision of ByteDance, the decision of the courts in Europe on international data transfer and data processing played an effective role.
TikTok, which will establish the first data center in Europe in Ireland, will have invested 420 million Euros for this region. In this data center, users’ data in Europe will be stored. In this way, TikTok will give confidence to Europe in data storage. This data center, which is expected to provide employment for hundreds of people, will be operational in early 2022. With this data center, which is an important step in protecting user data, users in Europe will be able to download and upload faster at TikTok.
