Early this afternoon, we had interruptions in our services. Our hosted platform failed. No just Tekedia but organizations like IEEE – the biggest technical organization in the world. It has proven one thing – we share cloud based services with IEEE. As we were having problems, there were also and none of us could do anything. We just waited until the host solved the problems.
This is dangerous. Imagine if this has been extremely time sensitive service. What will you do? Just hold up and wait for someone you do not know, never seen, solve and keep you in business? What of if they are gossiping over there while you are losing customers?
Cloud saves money, but the risks are very huge. It could be a bomb that can explode on a busines. Better get all the main services in-house and outsource the auxiliary ones. Unless, you want to Hope and not act when problems hit.
The photo is the captured page of IEEE when it failed. Of course, we did not bother to capture tekedia since we are telling you it happened. We hope to prevent such interruptions.
