Semi-rebuttal (as I'm not a fan of The Cloud either) - they store the
data in secured datacenters, and probably encrypted too, for storage AND
access. They have redundant power, internet links, infrastructure, dedicated
to-the-case staff ;) and so on.
Yes there is market for private cloud for companies that would go to all
lengths to /not/ sell their data to Google or MS, AND have enough
monies AND brainpower to match such setup, to ensure at least same 
level of service (i.e. having a bunch of obscure innocent looking 
boxes distributed around the office block unassumingly is not the 
name of the game for them any more)
