    RE: G.HO.ST
    Data Security G.ho.st has chosen a best-of-class secure professional data center for your precious data - namely Amazon Web Services (AWS) from Amazon.com. According to Amazon.com, Amazon's AWS file storage (S3) was built to the same service level standards that Amazon requires for its own web sites, with a targeted 99.99% availability, and storage of each piece of data on multiple servers in multiple Amazon data centers so that data will never be lost. Your files on your home PC or in the office are subject to disk crashes (which might occur in-between periodic backups), theft of the computer, viruses and spy-ware. Your files on G.ho.st are actually much more secure with immediate backup to multiple locations, 24 hour professional monitoring and physical and data security by Amazon.com staff. G.ho.st also includes several features to protect your privacy including encrypting all passwords and some other sensitive data using a VeriSign Certificate and minimizing caching of private data. Ghost is the most stable of the web desktops I have used. The Global Hosted Operating SysTem offers a fairly usable desktop using Amazons W3 service for file storage Dustin M. Wax
