80+ online-storage services

I knew they were growing at fast rate, but I had no idea that there are 80 of them today. I'll be shocked and surprised if 1/2 of them survive another 2 to 3 years. Ramakrishna from Univ of Texas had presented a paper on "SafeStore: A Durable and Practical Storage System" at the 2007 Usenix conference which kind of talks about how to safely and securely store your data across multiple service providers. I'll be very surprised if no one implements this in the near future.
