Vodafone Egypt Foundation has spent around 250 million Egyptian pounds (around US$35 million) on four projects to contribute to the development of Egypt, chairman Mohamed Henna said on Sunday. The 250 million pounds were disbursed in favour of four developmental projects; Knowledge is Power (Illiteracy Eradication Initiative), Madrasty (My School) Initiative, Vodafone Academy for Youth, and Electronic Library for People with Visual Disabilities. Vodafone Egypt’s Madrasty Initiative, the award winning of the Best Community Program Award, aims at providing a better educational environment for children in public primary schools while introducing capacity building activities to school teachers.

This spring, Taser International Inc won a small but high-profile contract to supply body cameras to the London police. But the deal nearly collapsed over one issue: where the video footage would be stored. In the end, the deal survived only after Taser dropped Amazon.com Inc as the data storage provider for the year-long project. The fact that Amazon did not have a data center in Britain was a deal breaker for British officials, according to Taser. The case is an example of the challenges that Amazon faces as it works to expand its cloud computing business, known as Amazon Web Services (AWS). In cloud computing, clients store and process data on remote servers accessed by the Internet, as opposed to storing information in local servers. Since Edward Snowden exposed the vast reach of the U.S. National Security Agency's surveillance programs 18 months ago, government agencies and companies around the world have been evaluating where they keep their most sensitive data. Some larger companies have grown wary of relying too heavily on Amazon's public cloud servers, preferring to store data on their own premises or work with cloud providers that can offer them the option of dedicated servers - the so-called "private cloud" model, technology consultants say.
