CloudFail Monitors Popular Cloud Hosting Services
By on August 10th, 2010

With all the hoopla about the whole world moving to the cloud soon, how does one make sure which cloud hosts are working fine and which have crashed? CloudFail is the answer to that question. It is a free web service that constantly monitor popular hosts and post status updates if there is any down time, maintenance or other issues.

The list of hosts include Amazon Web Services, DropBox, OpenDNS, Google Apps, RackSpace, VPS and many more. Several status updates are posted daily about services going through any activity that may affect users or performance. You can also click on any of the service and see current historical status updates. Each status update also gets a permanent URL so you can share it with your friends.

If you are the service provider or think that the information is not accurate, there is an option to post comments on each update. It is a great tool to keep track of whats going on with your service provider and take appropriate actions to  accommodate  for any down time and  performance  issues.
