'No BS' web host Gandi lives up to half of its motto... Some customer data wiped out in storage server meltdown

Anonymous South African Coward Silver badge

Somebody asked me why I don't back my company data up to the cloud.

This is one reason why. Imagine you'd get hit by crypto-malware, and just before you're ready to start restoring data, your backups goes TITSUP.

Second reason is - I want full control over my backups. Who have access to it, where it is, and how old it is.

And the third - $$$. It works out cheaper long-term to store it yourselves than having it out on somebody else's purdy compoota (or RAID array).
