CloudBerry Backup Desktop ReviewAn increasing number of businesses have discovered (or are at least exploring) the benefits of cloud storage. There are cloud options aplenty, from small-potatoes plans designed for a bit of extra storage for a SOHO shop, to massive operations that backup an entire enterprise’s kingdom. It’s an exciting, developing field, and it’s downright fun to see what new tools and services developers are coming up with.

CloudBerry Lab has created an intriguing spate of products designed to make managing cloud storage easier, including file explorers for several cloud storage services; a mobile explorer (for Windows Mobile only); and backup tools for Windows Server 2003 / 2008 (32 and 64-bit), Microsoft Small Business Server 2011 Essentials, and Windows Home Server...

I have actually been thinking of trying to sell some of this on a corporate platform. I know it is a great ides as well as a considerable financial opportunity. I just have never been much of a sales man. However if they are chomping at the bit for it the sale should not be very hard either.

Well... It's certainly got support for a lot of services and a lot of features for the enterprise. I do have to somewhat disagree with the tech savvy part; the interface reminds me of Microsoft Security Essentials just a bit, and I'm sure alot of people will appreciate the compression and the smart delete features. In fact, I might find myself seeing CloudBerry in the future.

Also it's nice to see you guys reviewing software instead of hardware. It's kind of a refresher really...

Oh don't take me wrong I was not speaking of this product specifically, I was talking about SOS not about any berries. However; it and Cloudberry have some things in common, and or basically they are cloud/remote based which is not something new anyway, it just just a new name. Up until now it has been network storage/backup now it is the CLOUD "Whooo,WoW, the CLOUD", it is however more accessible now I guess whatever. The one (SOS) I was talking about selling has been awarded by the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, and PC Magazine for 3 years running now as well. The concept however is much the same!

It maybe a good product idea to some who don't mind storing in the Cloud, but I'm one for privacy & believe that those companies information will one day be abused by those Cloud concept companies.Wink Believe me, they'll be important information to make money out of for those CEOs & other employees of the Cloud concept companies.Wink Yes! CEOs, because they'll be making the decisions to try to make extra money for their companies profit margins.Wink Other employees, because they'll be just wanting to make some extra cash, whether legal or illegal.Sad   Otherwise this product seems like a good idea for those that will not mind using it at all.

What you said,......and also,.......It's a matter of trust.

I don't trust putting my information out on the internet, and beyond my control, especially when internal storage has become so inexpensive over the last year.

I also don't trust other people to:

1. Know enough,

2. Care enough,

3. Be conscientious enough,

4. have the integrity required,

To properly protect my personal information and data.

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.
