    For the digital/computer geeks amongst us, AWS posted their post-mortem and lessons learned: http://aws.amazon.com/message/67457/

    Short story - one gen set (out of more than 10) failed to provide stable power before the UPS drained. They were without power for 10 minutes. But the actual recover the systems, get the DBs, EBSs etc sycned is what took the hours of time.

    Sounds like typical corporate 'KMA'. :mad: Outage reportedly lasted 20 minutes when the customer experience was quite different. And to make up for it they may give customers 2/10 of one percent rebate for their trouble.
