Hi Alexander,

Basically personal data. I don't intend to access the data in the
Cloud often. Just want to park it permanently in the Cloud. Maybe I
can access the Cloud from anywhere in the world?

USD$1300 per month is more than half or 50% of the monthly salary of a
typical university graduate in Singapore. So I don't think I will be
able to afford to pay USD$1300 per month just for cloud storage alone.
