But having suffered several days of turmoil thanks to multiple failures from my service provider’s network I’m inclined to be a bit cautious when it comes to relying on web-hosted services for anything that we might regard as mission-critical. But maintaining any redundant alternatives could easily wipe out the savings from using the cloud in the first place!
