Amazon on the big EC2 outage

Amazon’s summary of the incident.

And in an email I just received:

Regardless of whether your resources and application were impacted, we are going to provide a 10 day credit (for the period 4/18-4/27) equal to 100% of your usage of EBS Volumes, EC2 Instances and RDS database instances that were running in the affected Availability Zone.
