    I believe MS and Amazon do the same.

    (EDIT: Amazon goes back even further http://status.aws.amazon.com/ Impressive history too!)



    For whatever reason Apple will only show the most recent three days making it near impossible to compare unless someone's IT dept logs in at least every 3 days to record it.



    EDIT 2: This site gives quick access to the stats from several cloud providers. Still not helpful as far as understanding Apple cloud service reliability so the whole discussion of who is and who isn't compared to Apple is pretty much just supposition isn't it?

    Apple until just recently has relied entirely on other providers for these services and is only just beginning to move service to their own.  

    Of course a paid Google employee would know that.  But why should Apple bother when there is a record of any hiccup on their servers right here that remains forever.  On the other hand your two months with your employer Google is disingenuous at best.  You beloved Google has suffered far greater and crippling outages that barely get a mention from your camp and is buried deep into search pages on their site. I guess you can do that when you control the conversation.  None the less if you are willing to skip over all the Google placed articles you will find a ton of reports of massive lengthy outages from February, March, April, September, and October.  Outages that include everything to a two hour global shut down of their Global Platform that other companies rely on too, to Maps, Youtube, To a collapse of Google Fiber in Kansas City During the World Series.  Its amazing how such a spectacular history of failure remains so obscured.

    So just to be absolutely clear you're making your comments behind an accusation I work for Google, correct?

    Some friendly advice for you. I'm not one to go crying to moderators about you making unfounded personal accusations, ad-hom'ing your way along and breaking well thought out forum rules. Others here may not be so considerate when they're on the receiving end of a rant. Perhaps it would be better if you voluntarily went back and edited your post, sticking to facts and eliminating the silly transparent attempts to be insulting. They serve no good purpose,
