If you've got the bandwidth for it, then that's actually pretty cool.

LoveIT!!!

Buying extra drives for raid is terribly expensive this is the answer (if you have the cap and internet speed of course, hence US only)

RAID isnt backup - this is a cloud backup service, aint it?

I'll much rather have my data duplicated in the cloud even of that means a few hours delay than buying double storage disks the whole time in fear my 8TB single disk k@ks

I find it difficult to comment without knowing the terms of reference. How do you determine the risk to your company by copying your data to a cloud service? Who's else has access to it besides you? What are the data/information laws that apply to that country, etc, etc? Data is the new gold these days!

Valid point...
How secure is this so-called service too?

Considering this comes with Cloud Drive, it's an excellent deal. If shipping wasn't a pain, I would buy one.
