Yep. Now that I have a few years of observations on this, I can say without reservation that the people I know who rely on cloudy services suffer a lot more downtime than those who don't. Outside of a specific use case (being able to quickly change the scale of a deployment), I honestly can't think of a solid advantage to using the cloud. It looks more expensive and less reliable on the whole.
