So, in a nut shell, Amazon had a single point of failure which touched 
off this entire incident.

I am still waiting for proof that single points of failure can 
realistically be completely eliminated from any moderately complicated 
network environment / application. So far, I think murphy is still 
winning on this one.

Good job by the AWS team however, I am sure your new procedures and 
processes will receive a shakeout again, and it will be interesting to 
see how that goes. I bet there will be more to learn along this road for 
us all.
