Picking the right cloud provider: tough questions and fear of failure

Good data centers go overboard to avoid failure, and to plan for it when it happens


No matter which it is and how reliable it seems, though, don't be put off by reassurances of ISO certifications or five-nines reliability or any of the other metrics of a good data center. Check beneath those covers and ask what happens to your data and apps if the cloud goes all Amazon unexpectedly.

Even the best data centers – especially the best data centers – have contingency plans to make sure they don't lose anything if all their ultrareliable systems suddenly turn belly up for a reason they never expected.

It's how you can tell a good data center from just another data center.
