Today I found out about AWS being down...
Then I found this article 'A crack in the cloud: Why the Amazon outage caught so many by surprise'.
I am sure it was a big deal for those, who are running their application in Cloud using AWS. But again, its just a technology, things can always break. Its funny how much of an issue it becomes from a backup goes wrong. Apparently, a backup router was improperly configured during routine upgrade which caused failure of Elastic Block Store (EBS) system.
I am so sure tons of employees lost their sleep due to this failure.
