I think we are in a trap :) :) :)
We do not have a team of experienced SysAdmins/Data Engineers and I do not think storing the data outside our data center will be an acceptable choice :) :) :) :).
I would suggest looking for another job, but hey, thats just my trivial oppinion 😀
This situation usually is a signal for a lot more company wide issues.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
