Submission + - Public cloud computing contracts dissected (itnews.com.au)

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!
