OVH blames hour-long global outage on human error during 'routine' network reconfiguration

From what I understand from Amazon is there are no dependencies between regions. Therefore, an incident in one region is unable to affect another region. EG, each region has a console service to log on to etc. The worst outage I have seen was the Amazon S3 outage four years ago, but it still only affected one region.

Different from Azure, where South Central AD took out global services, and different from OVH who seem to be in all sorts of hot water when it comes to running public cloud.

While I am loathed to pay Jeff Bezos any more cash, they do seem to be able to run a stableish cloud.
