Hello we are US company and have multiple companies in Europe( France, Germany, UK).

 

Each company has its own tenancy but we want to migrate UK company tenancy to US office 365 tenancy. I want to know if it is possible to migrate to US tenancy and still comply with GDPR? If so how can we do it? I learned that OneDrive, Sharepoint, Exchange records should be located in respective region to be GDPR compliant. The reason why we wanted to move their tenancy is to bring all IT into one umbrella as we have many corporate applications with office365 sso to be used by all sister companies.

As I'm sure you know, Microsoft is committed to complying with GDPR - GDPR (microsoft.com).

but... considering the massive EU Data Boundary investment Microsoft is making, it feels you may be considering a move in the wrong direction.
