So much for setting a datacenter in China (Apple and others) and expect that your customer/business/proprietary data is not being shared with other Chinese State Owned Entities (SOEs) (i.e. your competitors)

Wonder the feasibility of having ghost servers which just act as fake servers to your external origin servers.

Well with the tightening of the Great Firewall (GFW) the chance of getting data out without their knowledge is becoming slimmer and slimmer

How will any foreign owned entity realistically do business?
