    Cloud storage is not different than home storage. They also required physical place for hdds and sdds. Or did you think they stored your data on the sky?

    The difference is they ensure redundancy.

      It's physical from the perspective of the cloud storage provider. But however many physical backups they need for redundancy and availability is their problem. From the user's perspective it's virtual because they can access it anywhere.

    Seriously: 3-2-1. Three copies in two geographical locations for one piece of data. Cloud + copy on separate hdd covers it.

    The cloud is just physical storage maintained by people way more competent and smarter than you.

    Yes and no. Rule of 3:
    1 physical instance in day to day use
    1 local physical backup in case main drive offs itself
    1 remote copy in case you lost local copies (fire, flood, burglars etc.)
    Never depend on just cloud, you can lost access to it at any time if your provider closes shop or just gets pissy and blocks your account just because.

    I want to use cryptomator with my ipad but I'm a bit confused about how it works. If it's unlocked while the cloud service starts syncing, won't it upload the unencrypted files?

        Clearly, the only solution is to 3D print giant slabs of hard plastics chiseled with the binary readout of your harddrive. After all, pic related survived 5000 years, and they're just made of mud.

          What fraction of these survived? You better have a few ten thousand copies all over the place.

          >What fraction of these survived?
          one museum has a collection of over 30,000 tablets from that time period.

          Let's do some good old 'tism:
          There are 3 text columns, roughly 14 + 9 + 14 characters each, so 37 characters per row.
          There are 41 rows, so each tablet has 41 x 37 = 1517 characters.
          That's disregarding shorter lines, and parts of tablets that were lost.
          Let's assume ancient Sumerians or whoever the frick they were wrote in Unicode. UTF-8 is variable length, but let's be generous and assume the worst case of 4 bytes per character everywhere.
          This gives us 1517 x 4 = 6068 bytes per tablet. Just short of full 6 kB.
          6068 x 30000 = 182040000
          So 173.6 megabytes of ancient civilization data that survived to this day.
          Divided by 4 (MB), you could store around 43 of your favorite porn clips from /gif/ for the future generations.
          Or perhaps an appropriately reencoded swap.avi, if that's your thing (although it would take a big quality hit, original is nearly 600 MB).

            Yes, and compared to the amount of tablets that were manufactured/written, the loss rate is what, 99.99999%? I think if we went for this this would also be one of the losses to keep in mind.

            If you limit yourself to ASCII, you quadruple your storage to 24272 bytes per tablet. You can even gain some extra usable characters by replacing the control characters. This is before implementing any kind of compression. Not bad.

          It's over if they're left in the sun. Redundant carvings into quartzite, basalt, gneiss, etc. are the only way until we get data crystals.

    absolutely not, but depending on the data you can do it by cloud without having a company destroying risk. Warehouse? Sure. Financial business? Absolutely not.
    It is cheaper than a local backup followed by an offsite at another location as secondary. Remember that cloud storage means, your items no longer belong to you. They can seize it, shut it off, search it and profit off of it.
    Companies with little risk do onsite backup that goes to cloud. When IT department leaders get in it is usually the first thing they put into place to show they are saving the company X amount of $ to justify their existence.

    Also cloud storage is literal spyware, have fun having all your files scan and their hash being store in perpetuity for 'safety' reasons.
