  9. 9. "Cloud" isn't magic though. There has been instances where cloud failed to give 100% uptime and it has been noticed with few providers like Amazon EC2, they were - > On 15th Feb 2008, storage service went down, including many companies including twitter. Many companies faced downtime, impacting their businesses. > On 20th July 2008, second storage service went offline for extended period, making many customer offline. This is what Amazon clarified for it : As distributed system, components need to be aware of the state of each other. This awareness makes possible for the system to decide which redundant physical storage server to route request to. This internal system communication was not happening correctly, so team decided to make server offline and to restore proper communication > On June 10th 2009, a portion of Amazon Web Sevices EC2 went down, which was explained as that it had lost connectivity in a part of its network due to a "localized" power issue. Apparently the cause of issue was a lightening strike
  10. 10. .. so what you need to discuss before get your business to Cloud > Privlieged user access - who has access to data and about hiring management of such administrators > Regulatory compliance - is vendor willing to undergo external audits and security certifications > Data segregation - is encryption available at all stages and were there designed and tested by experienced professionals > Recovery - what happens in case of disaster? how much time will it take for restoration > Long-term viability - what will happen if company goes out-of business? .. and few more. This will help to decide which provider to choose for your business
