Be aware that online data storage companies have gone out of business while giving little or no warning to their customers. One site gave something like 24 hours notice and the resulting scramble and crush of server traffic caused most people to come away empty handed.

I know people who got burned with this happening, people who could not get a restore done fast enough due to bandwidth. I have 1 TB of a SAN spread across two sites and can really only look at it as off site disaster management plan and not a practical way to restore in the way tape and spindles under the same roof can.

I'm not putting down the idea of off cloud storage but would not do it without a high level of surety and sweating the details.
