Tuesday's AWS S3-izure exposes Amazon-sized internet bottleneck

Amazon should shut down datacenters on a rotational basis every day of the week until the duplication message has been well massaged in.

The problem with that is that the lazy would simply move to another cloud provider that didn't do that, and then whinge when that one had a failure that bit their arse.

If you're a big enough player you really should be using tools like Netflix' Chaos Monkey/Gorilla/Kong trio to prove you're truly resilient. If you're not a big player, the truth is that AWS is probably not for you. From day one, AWS documentation has always warned that you should be prepared to handle outages.
