Cloud computing has been with us for a while now, but currently British Telecom offers on-line storage by something called the Digital Vault. Recently it sent its subscribers a message to the effect that the Digital Vault will be replaced by BT Cloud
. Users have until May 31 to download any files from the former, after which they will be lost. BT Cloud offers every user 2Gb of space free, with auto-backup accessible from anywhere, and the option to purchase up to 500Gb of space, a far cry from the times when typically an ISP would offer its subscribers 5 or perhaps 25Mb of webspace!

. Only one of these is in the top ten by subscriber base.
