We are happy to announce, that we advised Poland’s National Cloud Operator on Microsoft’s launch of its first trusted cloud region in Central and Eastern Europe, which was recently opened.
Worth approximately USD 1 billion, the investment is the most modern of its kind and also the first such cloud region in our part of Europe. We advised Poland’s National Cloud Operator (Operator Chmury Krajowej, OChK) during the complex negotiation process with Microsoft. Our advice included support in the preparation of the transaction documentation, the negotiation process, and in the closing of the transaction, as well as a comprehensive compliance audit service involving OChK’s provision of services to end-users, including those in the financial sector.
“We are proud to have made history by working on such an important and momentous project for the entire Polish economy. This investment is a milestone in the digital transformation process of the entire country and the creation of the Polish Digital Valley. We would like to thank our client, the National Cloud Operator, for their trust, and congratulate Microsoft on the launch of the datacentre,” said Michał Kulesza, partner at Rymarz Zdort Maruta.
Microsoft’s Polish cloud region consists of three independent physical locations around Warsaw, each consisting of one or more data centres. It guarantees the highest standards of security, privacy and regulatory-compliant data storage in the country. The entire process was advised on by lawyers of Rymarz Zdort Maruta, then still operating under the name Maruta Wachta. The negotiation process on the law firm’s part was led by partner Michał Kulesza.
