Default Unlimited online storage? Voilà!

Unlimited online storage? Voilà!

The internet weather has been turning somewhat cloudy in recent years and by saying that I now don’t mean to start another discussion about (important) Net neutrality here but rather to bring up the smooth transition to a trend of moving data to indefinite “shadowy” remote storage sometimes referred to as “The Cloud”, the shape and volume of which is mostly determined by various storage providers, instead of keeping it safe and sound on “trustworthy” local data storage
.
Chances are you are already entrusting this mystical cloud with your data by dropping it into the famous box, watching it skydive, uploading it with unseen simplicity or just backing it up securely with Mozy (ran out of metaphors on this one). The catch is, this fluffy “cloud” in reality consists of hardware that doesn’t come in lite or free versions, thus inflicting these otherwise great services with individual usage caps on free accounts, usually set at around 2GB with the exception of SkyDrive which has some other disadvantages, though. Of course, obtaining additional on-line storage with a paid membership is a decent choice… Until you familiarize yourself with the idea propelling Wuala.
