Replication Location Control in Global Mailbox

With current restrictions and evolving data regulations, there is more need to control how data flows in and out of specific geographic locations.  As the Global Mailbox feature of SFG/B2Bi increases support for multiple data centers, replicating data across all geographies by default would not be desirable functionality for customers with globally distributed deployments.

A feature to control and route data only to specific locations, would be essential to support enterprises utilizing Global Mailbox with multiple data centers in different geographies.

    Thank you for participating in the request for enhancement community. Your input is valuable in shaping the roadmap for the product. While we agree that this idea would add value, it is not something we are able to assign priority to at this time. In general, when accepting an idea, we strive to deliver the enhancement within 18 months. We will place this idea in an 'uncommitted candidate' in order to continue to monitor this enhancement for interest. If you have any additional questions or concerns please reach out.
