Not very green either

Bear in mind that all this wonderful object oriented disc is continually taking power (= CO2) plus it has a big real estate footprint plus it has to be cooled/heated. Plus all the other stuff like speed of access, security (is it really secure and hey it'll probably be in the US so if you store something that's nasty about them they'll trump up some charge in Sweden and have you extradited :-P), SLAs etc etc.

No, I don't think it's the way to go, not yet anyway.

Cheers
