(This article was first published at Network World. Click here to view that post.) When more than 20 services on the Amazon Web Services platform failed on Sunday, many of the internet’s biggest sites and apps, including Netflix, Tinder, and IMDb, suffered outages over a 6-8 hour period. The culprit behind these outages was AWS's NoSQL database DynamoDB, which was overwhelmed by metadata queries leading to substantial downtime affecting multiple AWS services (including AWS Elastic Compute Cloud [EC2] and AWS WorkSpaces).

Codero CEO Emil Sayegh delivered the keynote address at the Telco Data Center Summit in Dallas, TX, last Wednesday. Sayegh’s keynote looked at hybrid hosting, the future of IT infrastructure, and set out to ask one simple question: Are you ready?
