BPOS Down Again?

OK, so while we're talking about Cloud services with their security and stability issues, Microsoft looks like they wanted to get a mention again, so here we go! BPOS was down again earlier this week - their North American offering was down yesterday (Wednesday) for 3 hours from 11:00AM US Eastern Time - right in the middle of the work day.

The Cloud has promise, sure, but if you can't affort outages where you have no real control over the recovery, sometimes keeping your infrastructure in-house makes a lot more sense.  Microsoft seems to have some way to go before they put these network infrastructure issues behind them and can offer a truly redundant cloud solution.
