Altexa provides an online backup service – a small program copying designated files to an online storage space in a simple, secure way.

I have no idea whether Altexa is a good service! They may be great, they may have awful software, they may be out of business in a month. I have no knowledge, I don’t make any recommendation.

What interests me is that the storage space that Altexa will use for your files is purchased from Amazon. There’s a whole Amazon division (“Amazon AWS”) devoted to making space available to developers for storage and services. Here’s info from Amazon about what they’re doing to make their platform available to third parties. Our files are going to move away from our individual computers and into online storage spaces, I’m just sure of it; this is the kind of trustworthy infrastructure that will convince us to make that leap.
