AWS Got You Down?

As I sit here sipping on a freshly brewed cup of Aricha Edido pour over from our friends at Commonplace Coffee, a large portion of the internet is on fire. To be more specific, initially the us-east-1 AWS region (and now others) are currently experiencing major issues that are causing outages across a multitude of websites and services. At ContainerShip, we utilize some AWS services, but we prescribe to our own cloud agnostic formula, hence my ability to sip a delicious coffee, when at previous jobs I would be sweating and risking a heart attack.

What is IaaS?

The most glamorous part of cloud computing falls under Software as a Service, or SaaS. Providers make applications available which individuals and businesses can use, covering everything from resource management to backup.
