As I had to RTFA to figure this out, thought I'd pass on that VirtualBox is still going to be actively developed.

I think the whole fiasco is going to convince a lot more companies located outside of the U.S. to stay away from U.S. based cloud-providers and SaS. As a Canadian, I'm looking for a Canadian cloud provider that guarantees data is located in Canadian data centres, is Canadian-owned (U.S. law treats subsidiaries of U.S. companies as U.S. companies), and is only subject to Canadian laws.
I suspect many non-U.S. companies are going to do the same- I'd rather be subject to laws I have some influence over.
I've been doing this for a while now. Like others here, I have a Fujitsu Scansnap 1500- it's one of the best investments I've made for cleaning up my office/workflow.
When something comes in, I immediately scan it to the filesystem. My structure is:
2013/Banking/BankName/2013-01-31-14h32.pdf (or something like that- it's the default Scansnap filename.)
I then place the original in a filebox- keeping one filebox for each year. No sorting, organizing, just keeping originals.
At the end of each year, the filebox goes to the crawlspace, and I start a new one. After 7 years, intention is get the box securely shredded (costs about $10/box around here.)
I back the filesystem up nightly to two separate local NASs, and upload the whole filesystem (as a series of encrypted files) to Amazon Glacier (this is a recent addition to my workflow- has stopped me worrying about a fire etc. wiping out both NASs).
All of my documents go in there- it's really easy to find stuff (depending on how good your folder organization is- you can add depth for those kinds of documents that need it, while other ones that aren't likely to be needed can be put in a less descriptive folder hierarchy.)
