Well, we have an actual server room so it just doesn't make sense for us at this point because the server still works perfectly fine. If you're in the position where you need to upgrade equipment anyway or just starting out, then it's certainly worth looking into. Having all your data backed up in a redundant way and not all in the same physical location (where it could go *poof* if it's not backed up daily and a disaster occurs) is an advantage.
