Re: Continent to UK: Go it alone and we will want our data back
This is a very good point about data storage.  I have a few friends working in the UK who have just started spinning up data centers and co-location sites outside of England specifically because of this reason.  They do business through the entirety of the EU and need to be sure that when the official exit date hits that they aren't scrambling to figure out how to handle data.  Realistically they think they have a couple of years at a minimum but if you're not starting now then you're probably starting too late.

Continent to UK: Go it alone and we will want our data back
If Britain goes it alone on data regulations, something that few predict, it will stifle development of the cloud in the UK. Data from other parts of Europe already there would have to be shipped back to its country of origin and safeguards put in place in systems in France, Germany and elsewhere that would prevent it from being  inadvertently stored in England.
