I remain impressed
By the ability of amazon to do a route cause so quickly and go public with it.
In most corporates I've worked with it would take them at least 3 months to figure this out, even with C-Suite backing, and they'd only admit it 2 years later, because lawyers or something.
Makes a breath of fresh air that they have kept us informed. Unlike say, every bank ever, or talktalk, or adobe. Although naturally they've used up 5 years of their standard 99.99% availability quota in a single day so I'm by no means advocating they get supplier of the year... Just that others might learn that this is the proper way to keep users informed after a crisis.
