The recent Amazon outage has produced a few notable blog posts on the lessons learned in transitioning from a data center model to a pure cloud system. I recommend reading:
- Amazon Web Services official blog report of the outage
- Netflix Lessons Learned – notable for how they were not affected significantly
- Adrian Cockroft (now with Netflix) on why “private” clouds are a terrible idea
- Adrian Cockroft’s Blog – his other posts share detailed experiences working with Amazon Web Services
I am looking forward to what, if anything, Amazon chooses to relay regarding the reported Amazon Cloud Drive delays on Monday.
