Idioms are expressions that are used in everyday conversation to paint a mental picture of something – often expressing common knowledge or wisdom. After several recent high profile public cloud outages, one tried-and-true idiom kept popping up everywhere with numerous analysts and authors agreeing with the concept: Don’t put all your eggs in one basket.

Cyence, a startup that analyzes the economic impact of internet risk, reported that financial services companies in the U.S. lost an estimated $150 million.
