Managed AWS Cloud Recovery Solution – A Better Moustrap?

What’s that old saying? “Build a better mousetrap, and the world will beat a path to your door?”

The phrase is credited to Ralph Waldo Emerson, although the exact wording is up for debate. Regardless, the sentiment has caught on over the past 150 years and today, more than 4,400 patents have been issued by the U.S. Patent office for original mousetraps. A “better mousetrap” is a metaphor for any innovation that solves a problem – Scotch tape, revolving doors, Velcro. Identify a problem, observe the world around you, and experiment (repeatedly) for a solution.

“Cloud computing” has been ripe for innovation over the last 12 years, since the term was added to the mainstream vernacular when Amazon.com released its Elastic Compute Cloud product in 2006. Various flavors of cloud have been introduced (public, private, hosted private, hybrid, etc.), and today, there are so many companies offering “cloud services” that Forbes publishes a Forbes Cloud 100 list of new vendors each year.
