We were in final stages of making the decision to move to the AWS and this happens. We are now working on redundancy to make sure we don't get caught like this. Currently we have identical servers in very secure data centers 100 miles apart that monitor each other constantly with a program called replistor. IF we can solve the redundancy issue, we estimate we will save 80% or more on current costs not including the issue of replacing aging servers.
