"Still not being clear then. WTF does "sunset" mean in that context?"

It means that if you were relying on them for your data storage needs you're going to lose all your data if you don't find someone else to store it, and go through the hassle of copying it all over to your new provider - which if it is GBs or TBs worth, is going to take some time and cost quite a bit of bandwidth.

Which is one major reason why my company doesn't use cloud services, and never will, no matter how much the snake-oil salesmen push it on us.
