Dude, Where’s My Cloud?

Is You're Head in the Clouds?

OK, I stole the title from that blockbuster hit starring Ashton Kutcher.  So sue me.  What I’m talking about here is not losing your car but losing your business information.  In the movie, the kids couldn’t remember where they parked their car.  However, for this exercise substitute “data” or “Cloud” for car and you’ll know where I’m headed.  Is your Cloud parked in Tallahassee, Toronto or Timbuktu?

So after you’ve fallen head over heels in love with your shiny new Cloud make sure that when it breaks down you:

  1. Know where it’s parked
  2. Can actually get to it
  3. That it’s insured
  4. You have a spare on hand
  5. Have mechanic(s) that you can trust when something fails

There’s a bunch more but those are the biggies.
