Agreed. Most security standards require transport encryption and encryption at rest, but data is not usually encrypted on the entire path between those two states. Most data compromises happen due to unauthorized access to data at rest.

Given a determined enough attacker, no data is secure, so I'm satisfied with keeping the bottom 95% away ;)

It will not be encrypted as stored on the disk on the server in either case.
To the original point, Swiss Disk does encrypt the data stored on disk.
