How cloudy are you?

How much do you personally and does your organization use cloud computing?

Do you store sensitive data in the cloud? Do you know if your employees do? Do your clients know (or care) if you store their info in the cloud?

Use GoogleApps? Office 365? Others?

Just curious about any experiences and insights you guys might have in this area.

Thanks!

Keep all my FD related stuff on Onedrive, formally Skydrive, keep all my work and personal stuff on Dropbox. Have a Google Drive but haven't needed it yet. I like Dropbox best of the three. The cloud is just nice cause everything can be accessed anywhere.

I use one service but would never place anything critical or containing PII.

I must be old, I remember a time when people said the internet isn't safe and don't put any sensitive data on it. I guess it is safe now... they say put everything on it!
I don't!
I have multiple HD backups but put none of it on the web.

All of my non-sensitive personal information (family photos, etc) is backed up in the cloud in addition to physical backups. Nothing sensitive / financial.

The only thing I backup on the cloud is phone contacts and pictures.

Very little. I've uploaded pictures to Google Drive so that others can see them easily, once that's done I delete them. Nothing personal is stored on the cloud, though a lot has gone through email so I guess tomayto/tomahto as far as info security there.

I keep personal and sensitive stuff on thumb drives and CD's stored in several places. Here at home, at my cabin, in a safety deposit box at my bank, and with my lawyer.

I think I'm also one of the few people who keeps (gasp!) paper backups.

All of it. All securely encrypted.

Client data held by Salesforce. Portfolio mgmt online with PortfolioCenter. All client documents on Net Documents. Paper is dying.

None.

[edit] Actually, I think my Kindle Fire has the books and magazines backed-up into the Amazon cloud.

I have a Folder on my desktop PC with instruction manuals for things that I own. I sync it to Dropbox so that they are available to me on my iPhone and iPad when I am working on things. Very handy.

I also take photos of things that I am working on for reference and need to be assembled later. Again, synced to Dropbox.

I am experimenting moving it, along with other things, to Evernote.
