World, As Seen from the most beautiful islands: Ireland and Cyprus

New TikTok data centre in Dublin will go operational in the next year


TikTok has once again postponed the opening of its first European data center, which is in Dublin, Ireland. The data center will not arrive until next year.

The video-sharing social network has been planning to store the data of users from mainland Europe and the UK regionally since 2020.

The data center in Ireland would initially be operational in early 2022. The challenges posed by the ongoing global pandemic have had a significant impact on our original timeline, a spokesperson tells TechCrunch.

There have been concerns about user data security for some time because the parent company, Beijing-based ByteDance, is subject to China’s internet security law. Just like in the US, where TikTok has been blacklisted, in Europe there are fears that personal data will be passed on.
