Not only that, but uploading a 1TiB dataset implies a certain quality of connection which not all businesses want to take on...

As opposed to 10*100GiB that can be uploaded over a 56.6K modem, right? ;)

It's a reasonable cloud vs. on-premise argument. Obviously the scale of the data transfer to a cloud has more to do with the dataset size than the number of instances.
