Dan’s hard drive has died. Like many folks, Dan had never gotten around to getting that backup solution he knew he needed. Dan feels miserable when he thinks of all the software he needs to install, the stuff he’s lost, and all the account names and passwords he’ll never remember. Then he realizes that his family photos, email and calendar are all hosted online, as well as all of the services he uses to manage his life: his banking, shopping, purchased music and more. With his replacement computer in hand, he installs Firefox, logs in to his Mozilla account and resumes his online life without skipping a beat.Storing browser settings and bookmarks doesn’t require massive infrastructure. But an online storage service like the one described in Mozilla’s use cases is a different matter entirely.
