Re: I remain impressed
"By the ability of amazon to do a route cause so quickly and go public with it"
If you're a CIO and the whole company is betting on your strategy and you choose to go with a provider who fails and it take them 3 months to figure out and report on that failure, then you're gonna be asked to move off it pretty quickly and your credibility goes down the swanny.
If AWS want to maintain their leadership and gain their customers trust, they have to be transparent and quick to resolve. And yes, it is impressive. But I don't think they get a choice.
