Folks, I'm not going to bag on Amazon.com too much for their Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) failure; I'm sure they're getting enough flack from their customers. However, this is why I dislike any absolute statements when we're dealing with this type of technology. Technically, they're right. You don't have to worry about the cloud. You do have to worry about your cloud.
The cloud may have a backup plan for you. Do you have a backup plan for your cloud?
