Amazon EC2 taken down, taken down to China Town!

Recently Amazon’s EC2 Cloud service went down.  Unfortunately this isn’t the first time (and probably won’t be the last).  I am attaching the link below expressing how Reddit, Heroku, Foursquare, Instagram, Fab, Quora, Turntable.fm, Netflix and many others were down.  This happened back in April as well.  Also unfortunate is that we at IDMWorks eat our own dog food and use Amazon EC2 quite a bit so we were similarly affected both times with little notice and little time to do anything about it.  If we were an online vendor or social hot-spot we’d be screaming bloody murder by now.  Long story short, the Cloud vendors of today still haven’t matured enough to keep customers in the five 9’s category.  Something like this will hopefully be rectified as the kinks are worked out but should make prospective customers a little leery.
