Stormy Cloud

Amazon's S3 and EC2 services had three hours of downtime, followed by connectivity issues. The cloud looks a lot less reliable as Amazon fails to uphold their 99.9% uptime SLA. Hopefully Amazon will be open about the details; apparently they have been communicative on their forums. The impact of the outage is interesting; Tumblr and Twitter are two of the more popular sites affected.
