Why pay just once to warehouse your data...when you can pay for it every time you touch it?
Oh sure, the cloud storage seems cheap enough, but then there's that little part about the ISP's subsidizing the storage companies (much the same way as
Microsoft...errrr...Micro-SHAFT subsidizes hardware manufacturers). The storage is (seemingly) cheap, but the transport isn't. Cha-ching!
The "cloud" has to be one of the greatest and most blatant examples of social engineering of the modern era.
That, and one of the greatest intelligence gathering, monitoring and data concentration concepts...not to mention money making schemes...ever devised by mankind!
ETA...Good luck to you though!

on mobile and way past my bed time, all I'll keep this short.
don't wait for esxi.
vmware is only solvent because they were there first- they have the existing infrastructure in banks, governments, and health care... but they are behind the leading players.
you want to talk cloud, look at Amazon. they don't touch vmware, never they refuse to pay for the inferior software at ibm pricing.
other than that, maybe I'll check in tomorrow.
I have zero interest in cloud storage, but I suspect Microsoft has beaten you there with "one drive."
