NEVER BE AFFECTED BY CLOUD OUTAGES AGAIN
If Amazon's AWS S3 Outage Burned You—Don’t Worry; There’s a Solution
Here’s the quick catch up: close to 150,000 websites use Amazon’s cloud-based S3 system storage services. The system went down today, or as the Amazon’s AWS health dashboard reported it, there were “high error rates with S3 in US-EAST-1.”
There are a lot of various reasons companies use public clouds—the businesses don’t want to set up and manage their own servers, they are looking to cut costs and/or they want a simple way out of investing in extra infrastructure.
The downside, however, is that when the cloud becomes compromised, you lose out.
Public clouds are more susceptible to hacks and failure because they are built like extremely cheap apartment buildings and every tenant is capable of burning the whole place down.
It’s the opposite for Managed Cloud services. Private clouds are the solution because they are going to be equipped with better hardware, a superior uptime guarantee and have experts monitoring the servers around the clock.
