Can you imagine right now to get connected to the internet via dial-up network? Are you willing to pay hundreds of dollars for a software suite solution? We still have these things but we are making use of them in a different manner under different conditions and environments and this is all due to changes in the technology.
Well, there is news for you, technology is going to change again and emerging trends regarding online backup services and cloud computing will amaze the people as always.
Here is an example of how effectively cloud computing and online backup solutions are involved in your life. If you are using Google documents, then cloud computing is there too. Right now these online backup solutions may be a ''good'' option but very soon they are going to be the best option.

Applications which are converting to cloud computing, most of them are known to be non-core applications and those organization which are planning conversions to cloud computing, make use of such applications first.
