I do not really need it as it is just accounts, tax details, pictures of my children through the years, holidays taken and snaps of magic moments with friends. Not forgetting business critical data, databases, stacks of stuff on litigation hold etc.

    I can get along without it all, sign me up and I understand if it is all lost that nobody but myself is responsible.

    "Predictable quality of service" is a big deal. I'm interested to see how this works.
