    No one, because we keep our multi billions worth of data on 256MB RAM box running alpine linux :D

    It happens always unplanned and suddenly, can't predict them.
    Given that I have my i5 since 2016 with Kimsufi, nearly nothing can beat its uptime, duh.

    Bliat, this is not the best attitude towards your data... You know, amazon can happen for the luckiest of us.

    Raid does not care about data, but Backup does, its gentle.

    Gotta admit that the uptime reliability of aws the last few years has not been great... Why so few people talk about the risks of hosting on major public clouds is beyond me.

  • Lots of customers to serve. No API data to serve them.

    The same mindset as "nobody got fired for buying IBM/Microsoft"; it's easier to justify the choice when something breaks, even when it's not the best.

    I work with several companies. One of them wants everything in production on aws. Which just results into even more work because aws has absolutely no standards. For example the native kubernetes rbac doesn't work on aws and you need to configure iam for your users and configure your (managed) cluster accordingly. Also you need to install the storage drivers on your own.

    Also the support on aws is just plain bad.

    Yep fair point. When "everyone else" is down too when your down it's easier to explain away to management, right?

    That, and a lot of potential investigation points are wrapped in obfuscation and bureaucracy when you use a cloud provider.

    Taking an example of the current incident, where their update as per the status page is an "impairment of several network devices in the US-EAST-1 Region". If this was an impairment of self-managed hardware, questions would be inevitably raised as to what said "impairment" was, how it could be avoided, how it could be resolved faster, and so on; which would then lead to finger pointing and ultimately someone getting fired.

    When using a third party provider, this could be all the company rep shares and most customers won't push for further details, and even if they push most can be appeased by statements such as "this was an unexpected situation and we're always trying to improve our processes".

  • I don't get it why people here choose Amazon, when when we have LET. Many providers here are much better than Amazon.

    Because "Da Cloud" is da thang. IMO putting everything into the cloud demonstrates that most companies are run by bean-counter type management.

    "AWS [and the like] are giants which translates to 'good' and 'reliable'" fits into their minds. "all those technicalities and algorithms and that kind of stuff" don't. Way too complex. Plus "Low CapEx, yay! And low OpEx (and HREx)" (wet dreams).

    It very much depends on the industry you’re in. Financial institutions and those with huge amounts of customer data (like healthcare) are very much thinking about those risks, as are the regulators of said institutions.

  • And when you go with a giant company, unless you are a giant company, there's zero accountability. Do you really get what you paid for in this case?
