Abstract

The basic problem is that there exists no easy, affordable, accessible, and automatic process by which computing devices owned by individuals (eg. at home or in a small-business environment) or by companies with an intranet infrastructure (eg. IBM), can be completely or partially backed up. Users of computing device want a quick and easy solution to the old question "Where can I copy this data so that I can retrieve it later should my computer/device die?". The answer lies in a new e-business model outlined by this disclosure.
