Windows 8 Rumors – Backup in the Cloud

While some refer to off site, leased network storage as the cloud, I prefer to skip the buzzword. But, Windows 8 is rumored to have backup capabilities using Microsoft’s Azure platform.

I have said it earlier and I’m going to repeat myself here: Job postings are one of the only official sources of information regarding Microsoft’s upcoming operating system Windows 8. A new job posting was recently discovered that connects the Windows 8 Client Backup feature with Microsoft’s cloud based service Windows Azure.
