One response to “People Using Amazon Cloud: Get Some Cheap Insurance At Least”

    Good points – also note its not that hard to failover to another cloud site. I recommend using 2 different cloud vendors (EC2 and Linode.com) – setting up mysql replication between the instances, automate rsync over ssh for web directories, so that both sites are always hot – and then use DNS Failover techniques to automatically redirect traffic between them.

    But I’m biased – as I offer DNS Failover services anyone can afford at http://www.dnshat.com so take this with a grain of salt – but I’ve seen this type of automated failover setup work great for many clients using traditional lamp stacks.
