keep drinking the cloud KOOLAID. anyone with basic technical IT experience (a luxury in dimwitted IT Sales land) can see the big downsides of cloud computing. And when it goes down and gets hacked - businesses worldwide are effected - not just one business whose server might've died.

so which cloud company do you work for john?

to say cloud computing has no big downsides that every business should consider before adopting is plain daft.




and these effect many companies at once! not just one.

Xero doesn't have the back up x2 or 3 to cover situations like this.
While I am at it, - last time I was told, Xero was hosted someplace in US of A,
Think about what happens to your data, should FBI in the US do a "Kim DotCom" on the server farm, for some else who is also hosted - what then happens to your data - bye bye data - best of luck, - don't think that you will access it any time soon. Oh dear - I knew that I shouldn't have gone with them !!!

Xero is most definitely hosted in the US. Rackspace. Hence latency (speed) issues well known across the NZ/AU user base.
