Cloud is apparently not actually a cloud.
- Day one, there were 20-30 minutes of downtime.
- Day two, there has been 1 hour of downtime and we're still going.
Downtime does exist. I understand this much. A few minutes here and there isn't a big deal, especially not on a shared server.
However, this is supposedly a cloud service with autofailover. If the site goes down, we're supposed to go right back up. Right back up isn't 1 hour and counting.
There's my testimonial. As for a question, why is it that uptime is poor on a cloud service? Secondly, if there is no autofailover, what's the benefit to the cloud service? What does cloud mean to ASO?
