Amazon Web Services Down Again!

I really love Amazon's Web services. But, they're down, again, this morning, bringing our Web app to a screeching halt.

It looks like we need to have a contingency plan built into our Web app's start-up config to check for AWS down time and fall back to an alternate plan.

At least now, with Cloud Status, I can get independent confirmation.

Amazon's official AWS status board says:

9:05 AM PDT We are currently experiencing elevated error rates with S3. We are investigating.

9:26 AM PDT We're investigating an issue affecting requests. We'll continue to post updates here.

9:48 AM PDT Just wanted to provide an update that we are currently pursuing several paths of corrective action.

10:12 AM PDT We are continuing to pursue corrective action.
