Default Build Your Own Cloud Service

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.tweaktown.com/articles/4430/to_hell_with_the_cloud_build_your_own_today/index.html' target='_blank'>http://www.tweaktown.com/articles/4...oday/index.html</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"I don't know about you guys, but I'm sick and tired of hearing about the Cloud. When people talk about it they use future tense as if it isn't already here. The Cloud is going to be this big, giant wonderful thing that is going to change humanity forever. They make it sound like we are talking about something that will end starvation and human suffering. Well, I have news for you, The Cloud isn't really all that new and you don't have to wait for tomorrow to use it."</em></p><p><em><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com//dht/auto/1322067610.usr15670.png" /></em></p><p>TweakTown takes a look at QNAP's MyCloudNAS service, which comes with some of their NAS boxes. This sounds like an awesome feature, but with ISPs starting to come down on heavy data users, not to mention most services having fairly poor upload speeds, the advantages may not be that great. What do you think?</p>

It's an interesting idea, but I can't help but think the $4 or so I spend with Crashplan a month protecting nearly 800 GB of data would be really hard to replicate on my own. I realize this is more about NAS than backup, but a lot of people use a NAS for backup and don't do off-site backups...

Convince more friends to get a NAS, and do cross-backups? :P
