No Such Thing As Free Online Backup

Some things in life are free, but according to Venture Beat, online backup will never be one of those things – quite possibly due to the fact that advertising oriented business models that would suit free services, just don’t apply to online backup facilities.

But it is the nature of backup that will lead to it not being free…we never view our backed up files online! For this last reason, it is near impossible to derive advertising revenue from online backup and thus it will never* be free.

Food for thought…
