As I own an internet cafe here in mx. I have asked about that and my techs say many companies here have had problems with that service. Its not as secure as they say it is. Be careful before using it.

I'm not sure I have ever used it but as your rightly said its important that we stay ahead of cutting edge technology especially when we are running a business and its also important to secure things as safely as we can as internet crime and is theft is becoming a huge problem. I have heard of cloud technology but I.don't know loads about so I shall do some research and hopefully answe this a little better.

If everyone would use cloud computing i think its really a dream come true for cyber criminal, they just need to sneak into one place to "own" your whole digital life. It has more risk than benefits :(

I'm curious about the services and am tempted to sign up for a free account on one of those services just to test it out for awhile. From there we'll see how useful it would be for me. Could be a good thing but I'm really not sure at this point.
