(offsite) Backups are usually sold as part of the Cloud service. The very fact that the data is not locally stored anymore makes local backups not very feasible anyway.
Many corporations are considering moving their entire infrastructure to cloud or 'cloud-like' services.

It is not being sold as an add-on to enterprise infrastructure, it's being sold as a replacement.

The reference to 'porn' was meant to be a light hearted reference to 'your personal stuff', as opposed to 'your work stuff'.
