Keep it together is my opening about Lifestream Backup review. The internet life means our data is in a lot of different places, many on the web, and not always on our personal machines, so an online backup service that focuses on web-based data, or cloud data, is a needed service.
Delicious, Twitter, WordPress, Flickr and a range of other services that I use, you use, we all use online only. We have to go through a very tedious process to save all that data and in some cases it isn’t even possible. Well, I guess it is possible to save every tweet, every contact that follows you or friends you, but it sure seems unfriendly on your schedule and mindspace. I know I haven’t even considered it.
But the one backup that stood out for me is Flickr. Think about it: All of your personal photos, your memories, sit on Flickr often without sitting on your personal machine. I know I’ve uploaded photos from web-enabled devices (phones, cameras). But not made sure they are on my machine, too. You may be more organized and have it all together. Kudos.
So, for the price of a fancy coffee (with all due respect to those who still drink drip), you can backup your online data streams.
There are a few screenshots and details about how easy it is over at Small Business Trends. Take a look and let me know what you think. Retweet it, if you have time, or vote it up over at BizSugar.
