Re: Online storage servers
Also, consider your bandwidth restrictions. If you use a service like AT&T which charges you for overages in usage, remember that every file you download must be uploaded to the cloud. For home based users, services like Carbonite are good, but you won't be streaming data live from them, rather it is a DR resource available for you. I would always recommend keeping secure data in-house, and maybe set up a NAS with RAID enabled (you can go to electronics stores like Fry's and buy a 2TB NAS with RAID5 off the shelf, plug and play). This will add redundancy to prevent data loss due to drive failure. Also look into a UPS for your NAS.
