See? The Cloud is a Failure

Just peering at my Facebook updates, I'm seeing several sites downed and they're all tied up in Amazon's cloud. The Amazon forums have been lighting up with messages about many of the cloud instances having problems, and some media organizatons and the typical commenters of doom on the social media networks are writing about Amazon's problems like it's the end of the world or, at the very least, the end of cloud services. (Jeffrey Schwartz has a news piece on the problem here, if you want to read our news on the situation.)

Like any aspect of computing, the cloud isn't perfect and will have its share of problems.

Does your company use cloud-based services? Which ones? And have you been affected by the Amazon problems? Comment here.
