While googling for “cloud SLA”, I found this very interesting comment on YCombinator News; relevant part refering to Amazon Cloud Drive:
“We may terminate the Agreement or restrict, suspend or terminate your use of the Service at our discretion without notice at any time, including if we determine that your use violates the Agreement, is improper, substantially exceeds or differs from normal use by other users, or otherwise involves fraud or misuse of the Service or harms our interests or those of another user of the Service.”
This seems pretty arbitrary… I just hope Amazon doesn’t decide that my use “substantially exceeds or differs from normal use by other users” after I’ve spent the needed time and effort to upload the many TBs I’m planning on storing there… :-/
OTOH, the above comment also quotes other cloud provider TOUs and most seem pretty arbitrary on the termination conditions… basically they can terminate your account and deepsix your data for any reason whatsoever.
Is anyone else worried about that, or worse, found yourself in the wrong end of such a TOU restriction/suspension/termination?
