It creates multiple redundant copies, there are Linux command line tools and (commercial) clients for Windows/Mac, it's cheap, you can use different locations, you can serve/share files on the web with one click etc. It's also probably the biggest provider so it's not going away anytime soon (many of the cloud providers you'll find are S3 resellers with a front-end).
