The effects of the recent outages at Amazon Web Services (AWS) have reverberated through the cloud community and the IT community at large. For those that experienced a major disruption, there is much soul searching going on.

For those that have been slow to adopt cloud technology, it was a perfect "I told you so!" moment. However, the reality is that similar to any IT strategy, being prepared is usually the best course of action and can help avoid headaches and sleepless nights.

You did sign a contract...

Well, at least you digitally signed, or agreed to one. That contract typically has a service-level agreement, or SLA. People tend not to want to read the fine print, but if you suffered a major disruption because of Amazon's outage two weeks ago and you are looking for someone to blame, hold up that SLA and look in the mirror.
