Re: Aws direct connect affected

Just because you chose to put your production environment in a cloud doesn't mean you get resilience by default right? Do you not have to architect your cloud environment like you would your own physical environment by selecting resilience datacentres for your production workloads?

Like in Azure you might tick the geo redundant feature or ensure your backups, backup to something not in Azure for DR purposes. If a business jumps on the cloud train and works on the basis that it all "just works" when things go tits up, surely need to think again?
