Amazon loses data in cloud outage.

It's a tiny percentage, but this is one of the long list of questions small businesses have to ask before moving to the cloud. First it's securtiy, which Google has previously proven is not great, and then it's backup, which, well, there you go.

Anything your business decides to put on the "cloud" - meaning into a network your busines does not truly have backup and security control over - needs to be considered to be no threat if it's lost - either stolen or simply vanished. Because both can and will happen.
