Yesterday a portion of Google's network's infrastructure had a Two Hour Failure which impacted an unknown (but sizeable) number of users - see PCWord, InformationWeek, WashingtonPost, Forbes, plus #googlefail@Twitter.
This seems a good reminder of the benefits of a private cloud for mission-critial operations in enterprises... and of the benefits of standards in reducing the cost of exit.
