Shifting reesponsibility

All this does is make the constraint someone else's problem.

The assumption must be that the large cloud providers either have more buying power or more wriggle room to keep things running.

I am slightly surprised that Uber actually needs that much of a data centre footprint in the first place.

It is just an App and a database.
