The Insider News - Microsoft: These hackers got from a broken password to full control of a network - in just days[^]
The Insider News - Oracle’s BlueKai tracks you across the web. That data spilled online[^]
The Insider News - Cryptojackers hijack powerful machine-learning clusters in Microsoft’s Azure[^]

And that only in two weeks.

I don't argue that their security is bad, it is for sure better than what I would be able to bring up. But being that big makes them more appetible target for "manual hacking".
If you are capable to at least stop automated attacks, I think being a small target can be a good protection too.


On the other hand (ok, maybe you yes because you are in the US but...) there is no worldwide 100% certainty that you won't get "cut off" service, like ADOBE did with that Latinamerica country some months ago. OK, access was granted relatively soon again, but anyways...

If you have your own server, they might get you offline too, but at least you still have your data. You only need to find another provider and done.

As a final note:
I don't say cloud is bad or good.
I see its advantages. But it has its disadvantages too.
If you inform yourself good enough and you take your own decission... do what you want / fit you best.

If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
