The pipe is good. Bandwidth available is something over 10mbit, reliably (I 
haven't done extensive tests to say exactly how far it goes, but a download 
from my slice pegs my home cablemodem at 12mbit). Latency is also good; 
they're in St. Louis, just a couple hops from Chicago, and Chicago is just a 
couple hops from most other places. :)

The storage is RAID1; you have three slots available for backups (snapshots); 
one made nightly, one nightly kept as a weekly (you pick the day of week), 
and one you can make on demand. Last time I checked they don't make it clear 
whether or not they actually send those offsite or what.

Anything else you're wondering about?
