Windows 8 To Include Cloud Backup?

Windows 8 will be released in 2012 but news is already swirling about the operating system backing up to Microsoft's cloud storage service. According to Download Squad, a job posting, which has since been pulled, states that Microsoft is "working on a Windows Azure-based service and integrating with certain Microsoft online services and Windows 8 client backup. Many of the features we develop have ended up in the Windows Client and Windows Server OSes."

The news does not specifically mention Windows Azure but it's clear any cloud-backup would be part of the Azure platform.

Online storage for the every day user is a growing business. Microsoft is actually launching its own service in 2011 called Windows Live Mesh. It will replace Live Mesh beta.

DropBox, Nomadesk and Mozy are just a few of the companies that now offer online backup services.
