This week, the product I work on was broken by a rate limit on Docker Hub, then a bug(?) in Terraform, and today by limits in AWS.
Luckily I could fix the Terraform caused outage quickly, but the Docker Hub one and this AWS one, I can’t.
The one big thing with everything going “cloud” is that you lose control of your business - limitations and outages somewhere else that you have no control over can hurt you. Badly.
