The cloud isn't as secure as people would like to think it is.

Our company used Amazon web services AWS for email. We found out the hard way that unless you replicate your data to a min of 2 different data centers your still just sitting on 1 box with a drive. When AWS had major problems with there disk system we were down for 3 long day and this was all email. You can just reload 3TB of email in a flash.
I then looked at Google and after having many meetings I finally got to engineering which told me your data will be housed in one of our data centers then replicated to another for backup. IN the even that both centers fail your data is still on another continent (provided connections are up)
In a nutshell its just a rack with a drive in the cloud and the cloud can fail you so why not just keep it local.
Most NAS servers have a cloud connection so you can still access your home data while on the road.
We have brought our data back in house and will keep it there nice and safe and we will be accountable not some random kid on a skateboard.
