Your data is at risk – Personal Information Management – Apple shuts down MobileMe
Apple has closed their MobilMe Cloud based Storage service. They are actually replacing it with iCloud. BUT not providing the transition services. I would be surprised that the formats and processing would cause any issues, but it could happen. If nothing else it is a hassle to say the least.
This should be a warning to all folks that are proceeding headlong into “Cloud Storage Services” A few years ago in 2009, Yahoo discontinued their Cloud storage Services when they closed their “Briefcase Service” http://bit.ly/LTnAuj this caused a lot of problems for millions of users.
If you recall Yahoo at the time was one of the premier Internet sites. They were having troubles, but they were still a leader. Point being, even the leaders have programs that are not profitable, and not sustainable.
Cloud storage is very hard to do. It takes multiple areas of expertise.
Call to action:
Your data is at risk. Secure your information’s future by backing up locally and then, and only then consider Cloud Storage Services. Have a plan, and stick to it.
