The cloud idea is not very smart from the get-go..
First in many cases you sign your rights to your material away...
Second if your data gets lost you are out of luck and have nowhere to turn for damages.
When the cloud goes down you cannot do business.
Take responsibility for your own data, don't send it to the cloud..
When it's time, it's time, and it maybe sooner than you think.
using a cloud for storage purposes is pretty lame
if you're using it for distributed processing, it's awesome.
Also, about backups... redundant storage is not really a backup. That comment will undoubtably cause some confusion, but enjoy.
Are you able to point to a Terms of Service or similar document on any cloud provider where you sign away rights to your material?

Maybe I haven't seen enough sites but I've never seen a big name / mainstream site that says if you upload a photo or writing or other content then we own your content.

If you upload a photo to Flickr, you need to grant Flickr the right to send it out again through a web server otherwise the system cannot even function.
Most of the uproar that has occurred from time to time over the years with terms of service on various sites seem to have been a misunderstanding of that clause, sometimes because of bad wording
Wozniak hasn't been right since the crash. He's functionally a derp. He's happy and folks humor him so I am glad for him, but his opinion are like listening to "Corky" from Life Goes On.

OK, it sounds like you aren't familiar with the purpose of cloud storage. It is 3rd party, off-site, live, private storage. The storage space is supposed to be private, confidential, and only accessible by the user. A place that exists on the internet for you to store secure copies of documents, phone books, etc...

It's not a "product" at all.

So don't look for a brand name to be attached to it.
