IBM’s terms for example, can change without notice, whilst Amazon’s offers no warranties around security or liability. The worst clause? Softlayer offers a 100 percent uptime guarantee – but outages under 30 minutes aren’t included!
Never tell people how to do things. Tell them WHAT to do and they will
surprise you with their ingenuity.
