re: Amazon Outage Hits Netflix, Heroku, Pinterest, Instagram
The outage at EC2 is neither the first or the last. Amazon is a leader in reliability and if it happens to them, it can and will happen to any service provider. The point is that enterprises need to take responsibility for planning their contingencies and workarounds. As enterprises get more serious about higher-level workflow automation, they will spend less time bemoaning outages and more time abstracting their processes from specific infrastructures and application environments.
