Re: Verizon
I'd argue the security for this would be better than having a diverse set of tools all over the place on a system. Yes, security is an issue when you consider cloud environments. But at this point, when we're seeing every software vendor selling a cloud-based solution, there has to be some integration into a single system.

Re: Verizon
From what I've seen Verizon's still positioning itself as the premium option for wireless services. Most of the price competition (at least in postpaid) has revolved around discounts that try to upsell users to higher data allotments.

Re: Verizon
The providers do seem to be giving more consumer friendly options lately. Whether they'll be unexpected changes to those consumer benefits remains to be seen, depending on the competitiveness of the industry, and demand for better pricing and good service from Verizon and other in the market.

Re: Verizon
I do hope that the promised security is extremely robust. It was not that long ago that several high profile hacks took place where the companies data was held for ransom. The learning for those companies was to have backups. But, if your backup is cloud based, what stops these hackers from hijacking the backup as well?

Re: Verizon
Surely a great move for Verizon to make sure it's not harmed in the event of some seemingly rare event that would cause havoc for the company and customers. It may be interesting to see if cloud backup and disaster recovery service, might be something that individuals and smaller companies may eventually find essential and cheap enough to buy.

Re: Verizon
Data recovery is very valuable business. The idea of virtualizing data, then, makes a lot of sense. I think a lot of businesses will pay for this. I'm not entirely sure what consumers would pay for this as a service, but I'm sure there will be interest. The business prospects of this are much larger.

The telecom is really pushing ahead. I saw it anounced new prepaid plans for smartphones today that even extend to 6GB. So it seems to be really aggressively trying to attract customers on both the consumer and the enterprise end.
