Amazon AWS: Almost Perfect Cloud Failover Engineering

September 4, 2019

DarkCyber noted a tweet from Andy Hunt. The tweet stated:

Amazon AWS had a power failure, their backup generators failed, which killed their EBS servers, which took all of our data with it. Then it took them four days to figure this out and tell us about it.

We also noted this write up: “Strangelove Redux: US Experts Propose Having AI Control Nuclear Weapons.” Assume Amazon continues to make headway in the US government. What happens if an Amazon glitch occurs at a critical time?

Just an idle question.
