@TheTraveler: I think a better solution is something like storj.io. It's open source. Blockchain based and encrypted, distributed cloud storage that pays out btc to users that host drive storage space. I have been thinking about this before hearing about storj.io, and I have the additional idea of splitting up parts so that you'd require 51% of the network computational power plus parity check data to restore parts from the cloud. So even in the future, a brute force attack against stored data (i.e. if I stored encrypted copies over time, then I could run a brute force attack on that data over time and yield potentially sensitive information, so long term to protect the data in the future, it would also have to be split up and the address locations only exposed to the public key holder. Something like that anyways. Just spit ballin' the idea, but storj.io has already implemented much of this idea and I am going to try it out. :) It's certainly a competitor to other cloud providers, and offers security and long term protection against censorship, or manipulation of data (think 1984) and a form of version control (gitchain + storj.io has to be). And a ton more. I could go on and on.
