Abstract: An object of the study is the potential risk of hosting the server outside of the country. The goal of this article is to define the risks and opportunities associated with the rapid development of cloud technologies and their penetration into almost all technological areas. The modern-day economy is evolving under the influence of information and communication technology. People are witnessing huge success in every sphere of management and economy with the use of Cloud Computing, Big Data, and Cyberphysical Systems. Modern life and work are shaped by cloud computing. It has become a part of the daily lives of people. Companies of all sizes have now turned to cloud computing for their business needs. Currently, everyone is talking about the cloud solution as a way to save money and increase the efficiency of resources. However, nothing is perfect, and this is no exception for cloud computing. The use of this technology is undoubtedly beneficial, however, there are some risks and concerns that should not be overlooked. The purpose of this article is to raise awareness about the ongoing war between Ukraine and Russia, how it impacts cloud technology when hosted outside of the country. Furthermore, this article will also look at how this war affects the IT industry if organizations depend on their operations and get support from outside countries, including hardware, software, network infrastructure, data centers, mobile device management, cloud computing, cyber security etc. Although cloud computing is developing rapidly, both conceptually and practically, legal, contractual, economic, service quality, interoperability, security, and privacy issues continue to pose significant challenges. The discussion focuses on critical challenges in cloud computing: regulatory, security, and privacy issues. A brief presentation on the future trends of cloud computing deployment is also presented, together with some solutions to mitigate these challenges.
