It’s Thanksgiving here in the U.S., so in between baking, roasting and watching Risk Astley rickroll millions in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, I had a thought about how the utility and agility of the cloud computing models such as Amazon AWS (EC2/S3) and the pricing models that go along with them can actually pose a very nasty risk to those who use the cloud to provide service.
