Cloud storage is fine for things you want to be able to access easily form different computers/devices and also easy to update, but I would not keep anything important in the cloud that I didn't have elsewhere as well! Preferably stored in multiple ways (external hard drive(s), DVD:s...)
Certainly it makes sense to have a redundant backup strategy. But cloud storage is big business in the commercial world. The company I work for (not Amazon) is investing serious money in selling secure cloud data storage to businesses.
