Editorial Now that everything is moving to the cloud internet, you might think that data loss is a thing of the past. Sadly, as the past few months have taught us, this actually isn't true; we first had the Microsoft/Danger disaster, and now we have Palm and Sprint facing a class-action lawsuit over data loss for webOS phones. All this raises the question: how safe is it to store your precious data on the internet, and do you really trust the internet?

5x9's isn't excessive if you're an enterprise and your entire business is riding on customer guarantees.

But if you're just a regular business, like most, it is very excessive. My customers would balk at the cost of the last couple of 9's, at least. Because limited down time for those services doesn't cost them that much.
