Netflix down on Christmas Eve

Raj Perumal Raj Perumal Profile: Raj Perumal

Hi folks, so Netflix is down on Christmas eve. This is apparently due to the Amazon’s AWS. This brought a thought to my mind.

When you decide on who to host your cloud services with, do you have a checklist? Do you do your due diligence? Do they take proper backups, have failover power capabilities and treat your data with privacy?

These are all important questions for the cloud, and when we’re talking about your business, it’s best you pay heed to the answers. After all, Netflix being down is one thing, but your business being down is a whole different ball game.
