Russia may be running out of cloud storage space

The war in Ukraine is wreaking havoc on the tech industry in Russia. Economic sanctions and corporate exodus have led the country to about to run out of web space.

According to a news agency report Kommersant, Russia has two months left before it runs out of cloud space. The departure of service providers has created a crisis and local businesses don’t have enough data centers to meet demand across the country.

Economic sanctions and the fall of the ruble prevent Russian companies from developing their activities. For this reason, the Ministry of Digital Transformation met with representatives of technology companies and consider taking over abandoned servers by Western companies.

To counter Washington’s offensive, Vladimir Putin’s administration imposed export restrictions. This ensures that foreign companies cannot take their servers with them once they leave Russia.

The authorities are aware that the situation may become complicated and that they must take extraordinary measures.
