Google GDrive , Is Google planning to offer remote backups thru Google Gdrive?

Google Gdrive :A (supposedly) Google gaffe has given rise to theories about Google offering Google Gdrive, a remote backup virtual internet drive for all users.

While some people already use Gmail as a kind of Gdrive , at least for their Outlook and large files, a formally christened Google Gdrive will rise to usual conspiracy theories about Google controlling all the world's mission critical data and messages. Google could then mine the data and drive more personalized ads to the individual users.

My 2 cents on Google Gdrive :- Wait till the fat lady sings.

Microsoft has turned the unlikely data center hero- by promising to zap the Sony rootkit in the next release of their anti spyware download.

Hooray for anybody who battles rootkits - the enemy of all data center disaster recovery personnel.

I may be cynical about the disaster recovery data center certifications being offered in the industry today.. But dont blame me.. I was always cynical, right from the ISO 9001 days

Disaster recovery data centers

I got a call from a friend who is starting a specialized disaster recovery data center in Miami. He is an expert in business continuity planning and has this grand plan of selling isolated 'data center seats' to corporate IT departments.

Best of luck to another IT entrepreneur!
