Best AWS outage post yet

April 26, 2011

From The Cloud is not a Silver Bullet by Joe Stump at SimpleGeo:

…what is so shocking about this banter is that startups around the globe were essentially blaming a hard drive manufacturer for taking down their sites. I don’t believe I’ve ever heard of a startup blaming NetApp or Seagate for an outage in their hosted environments. People building on the cloud shouldn’t get a pass for poor architectural decisions that put too much emphasis on, essentially, network attached RAID1 storage saving their asses in an outage.

Go read the rest, it’s great. Better than mine.

    Lots of good info in that article but I far prefer your no-drama way of writing. I like to know how to fix things, not be given a religious lecture.
