Amazon EC2 instance failures

We have suffered two Amazon EC2 instance failures in the EU (Ireland) region in the B availability zone in the last 2 days.

There was no disruption to our clients but two failures in two days in the same availability zones seems odd or just unlucky!

This further highlights (as we have) the need to design systems with failure in mind.
