    I know Mint is said to be putting out some pretty decent stuff… but I just cannot stand all that bilious green.

    Hi Jeff I don’t think I suggested that Amazon is a health vendor the problem isn’t the cloud itself, the problem is the system that’s out there *in* the cloud.

    I was a big follower too until this device lost all of my data. They have some data integrity issues they need to solve first before I would feel safe using this device again. Their support sucks since it’s always a guy by the name of Frank on the phone, the poor guy must be working 247.

    Dave, great points but I would not include Amazon as a Healthcare mission critical cloud. Cloud is the same all technology, it is only as good as the weakest link. They are probably fine for most website but not healthcare. Healthcare sites need to be mission critical fully redundant systems managed by network engineers that know what they are doing. You have to do your due- diligence when selecting any systems.
