The most likely result IMHO is an agreement between the EU and the USA. The result could be a test for EU federalism.
US corporations work in the EU via a variety of legal structures designed to lower tax and limit liability/risk. They have managed to profit nicely despite changes to EU and local law by just staying ahead of the very slow legislative process and lobbying. Similar methods will be used to architect legal data transfer.
I admit it is fun to imagine this turning into an exciting change. So riddle me this:
How does an EU citizen act against a non-European & non-resident company doing bad things with their data today?
All of the UK is not in the EU, what happens if an EU person's data makes it to the USA via the Cyprus Sovereign Base Areas or British Indian Ocean Territory?
I deployed a V7000 system for IBM and the IBM sales folks are indeed the biggest problem. They promise the world and do not understand what they are talking about.
The V7000 had serious limitations and bugs when I was setting it up (Q1 2012) and as Peter Gathercole mentioned the GUI interface that tries to hide the complexity of GPFS just makes things worse.
Add in the support issues John mentioned and it seems Re-Store have a sweet niche helping folks with a genuine need for GPFS.
My dad bought me one of these when they came out. I was 13.
He used Lotus 123 on a cartridge and something called PC-Turbo (do not know what it did)
I played Wizardry, Starflight, and Kings Quest (which had a bug that prevented finishing the game).
The ROM basic was the only language I programmed on the thing. Funny to think that it was 30 years ago.
