The Day the (AWS) Cloud Died

In Cloud Computing on April 24, 2011 at 4:53 pm

Well looks like the Great AWS Outage is now on its third day.. Despite the change on status from red to yellow on their status site the east availability zone is still not 100% up and running. For many us this is one big pin prick to our cloud balloon specifically the one that says ‘AWS’ on it.

The news is now being picked up everywhere and I don’t think they will be able to just sweep this under the rug.

The confidence of majority of AWS users have been shaken to the core! I don’t mean to sound so melodramatic but I could have been screaming for blood if we (in the west zone) got hit as well. As for this posts title..
