Recently I read a story via Reddit where a famous artist lost all his data due to an issue with the provider or for some other reason.

While the loss of the data is a big hit, the most important aspect of the story was that the person did not have a backup his work.

The key take-away from this story was that we should not rely on the ‘always available’ and ‘backup taken care of’ claims of blog providers. For all data hosted on the cloud, we need to maintain a backup.
