server farms and backup generators taken out
I would like to point out that we kept our **** together during the leap-second
In fairness many of the issues that arise are due to having the same underlying software & structure for everything - if there's a bug in one of the layers, it'll hit you. Being heterogeneous sounds like a good idea, but unless you're very smart, it creates even more opportunity for bugs.
And "relying" on the cloud is fine, so long as you treat it like any datacenter and ask the question "what happens if a truck crashes into the substation"? The answer is - multiple availability zones, cloud or not. That costs money, but if it's worth it for your business...
Steve, stop touching the hardware please....
and stop gratifying yourself.... proper unusual dude.... proper unusual.
fit's in here a treat

relying on a single "cloud" location is as short sighted for an enterprise relying on a single datacenter.
hybrid cloud is probably the best way to go these days although I like to have my own servers in the datacenter as well as in the local server rooms this "Cloud" crap does my head in.
Cloud = when some one is in a meeting and doesn't know what to call it.
I remember back in 1999 when I got a service that had on demand space and 24/7 uptime on servers I didn't own or even see. It was called hotmail.com, this "cloud" computing is nothing new.
I cringe in meetings when people who have been out of the loop for years but have top jobs in IT talk about the cloud and they all nod together... cloud this and cloud that. The only thing that’s in the cloud is these people’s heads!
"I know, lets use the cloud to store peoples data and get rid of the SANs and replication!!" They forget that these offices are in the back of beyond and have 256k satellite internet, good luck with accessing your data on a 100% hosted solution over that connection

Every Cloud has a silver lining, especially if you are the hosting provider.
