You think large cloud providers (Google, Amazon, IBM-Softlayer) dont live up their SLA? History shows they do. If you dont mind, some people like to take decisions based on data available. They can steal your data, as much as they can tap your traffic when you are located in their datacenter or use their physical access to gain root and bug your system. Do we really have to discuss these?

Office 365 subscription is yearly. The next time you renew your subscription you will clearly told of this change. Are they not allowed to stop offering plans? I think microsoft is being more than fair here.

And no they have not taken out the competition. No one really uses Office 365 subscriptions. They have a tiny portion of the backup market. Backblaze and people are much much bigger. This is not them being anticompetitive.

No, you dont understand encryption. If nazis used one time pads, and ended every message with "Hail Hitler", you would still be 0% closer to solving the code. It does not simplify the code breaking. Each and every letter is independent of each other. The encryption key is random.

You dont get a small subset at all. You can literally get anything you want out the code. You want the hamlet, sure you can get it.
