    Yeah... if you say so.
  3. So "one stop data shops" for hackers to go snooping through.
    It isn't home computers russian hackers are getting 1 billion passwords from.
    Now more of your data, on someone elses hardware with terms of service that keep them out of prosecution when they fail to protect it.
    Surely the best option is a NAS box, encrypted.
    And thats if people don't claim that the CPU's in them are all shonky with a gifted back door for the NSA and such.
    USB's all flawed. Google and Yahoo encrypted email, which they will go through.
    I don't know why people should put their faith in the cloud.

    This is one thing that my boss believes to be true. That we'll no longer purchase hardware and manage our own datacenters. That we'll buy storage and CPU from someone else in the future. Hopefully trustworthy. And save some money in doing so. (Hopefully that means I'll still have a job in the future!)

    For non-important personal garbage I don't have an issue using cloud bases services. I don't care if Uncle Sam see's any of that. For important documents and data I would never trust any cloud based service. I have local RAIDS setup on PC's with no WIFI and LAN cards removed/disabled.
    Professionally, we don't offer any cloud storage and stay away from it here at the Hospital. We know of many business's locally that do the same.
    We don't have an agenda against it but for security reasons its not a consideration at this point.

    I can see a couple of IT positions becoming redundant in the event that this is adopted.

    Just remove the porno traffic, and the world is saved again, on a single hard drive ;)
