The Cloud Life is a digital archiving service that plans for disaster so you don’t have to. 


If every cloud has its silver lining, then the Cloud Life—a new luxury digital archiving service—is the sterling result of natural disasters. Its co-founders, entrepreneur Brittany Messmer of Menlo Park and public relations professional Anna Morris of Atherton, “were overwhelmed by all the fires and hurricanes in 2017 and wanted to create a way to help people protect their most important life memories and documents,” Morris explains. “We personally knew friends who lost everything during the natural disasters, and the thing we kept hearing is how most things are replaceable, but photos and other precious memories are not.”
