It seems that every day another supposedly redundant cloud service is toppled for one reason or another. Let's look at the numbers... Okay never mind that since there are no numbers!

We keep hearing about how the cloud makes your applications and data more robust, but does it really? All the cloud really does is use someone else's server which you do not manage, sitting on some edge network somewhere, getting older and more prone to breakdowns every day from now going forward. It is new, so perhaps things will be good for a while, but.. is this a model for success? NO!

We strongly suggest that you consider the SLAs and security statements for your data that are given for this wonder-product. Let's get past all the fluff! Is it really a good idea to let someone else manage your data? Is that data always accessible? Is your Internet connection always accessible? If it isn't what is that downtime going to cost you?

Cloud? Nah.. not this time...
