PodSession: online storage

In this week’s PodSession Om and I talk about online storage and the increased need to backup your digital lifestyle. The launch of Amazon’s Simple Storage Service was just the beginning of online storage utilities. Companies such as Amazon help people feel their data is safe with a company that already manages large amounts of data and will be in business for a long while.

We are starting to see some enterprise-level backup and storage technologies applied to the consumer space. Home computer users are consuming more and more storage space by ripping CD collections, downloading music and movies, and loading large images from their cameras. Lost data means either a lot more work or memories vanished forever, creating new opportunities for a data insurance policy for individuals.

This week’s PodSession is titled Online storage. The podcast is 21 minutes in length, a 9.6 MB download.
