Amazon web services goes down

It is unbelievable but true ! Amazon Web Services suffered a major outage this morning, affecting the thousands of Websites that rely on its storage (S3) and cloud computing (EC2) services. Here is the whole story

When I first got introduced to S3 and saw the demo of the concept with the high availability architecture behind S3, I felt this is the thing of the future. Now, I am thinking, we still have a long way to go while building highly scalable and available applications.
