The main problem with google hosting business data for my work was they could not guarantee that the data would remain in the EU and thus be governed by EU law. Our lawyers spent many months negotiating this with them in 2010 and could not be resolved. However Microsoft could ensure it and we eventually went with their Live service and some custom agreement.
