Microsoft joins the 1c/GB/month cloud storage caper


Re: Sounds good!

The thing is that when your office burns down along with that ancient core2 mobo and 8 sata ports and your company's data accounts and other important records have gone to the big bit bucket in the sky for ever and ever, amen, $104 bucks a month suddenly starts to sound like a good deal...

You don't need to balance the cost of storing the data yourself, you need to balance what that data is worth to you - ergo what it would cost you if it was lost forever, if you are using this sort of service for online backup...
