Amazon is down ... again  
API's of some of our business partners are down today, thanks to Amazon S3 being down in their North Virginia data center.

Amazon's failure is the hottest topic on Hacker News today with 1500+ upvotes after just couple of hours:

Admins joke about Amazon uptime status panel that falsely report "green" simply because it relies on failed S3 service:

The ease with which AWS was able to get off the ground by leasing colocation space in northern Virginia in 2006 is the same reason that US-East is the most fragile molecule of the AWS cloud: it’s old, and it’s running on old equipment in old buildings.

Fortunately, when I chose datacenter for Amazon SES - I picked Amazon's "West" datacenter. It is up.
I expected Amazon's primary (North Virginia) datacenter to fail again. Today I got the confirmation.

PostJobFree itself is hosted on SoftLayer - that never had any major downtime like Amazon has every few years.

What do you mean under "availability groups"?
