Does it cost Truecrypt TCO $403 year? for a company with fewer of 50 employees? I know Trucrypt don't have, enterprise functionality, like admin and user password, integration with identity management, but I thik 403$ year only in support and maintenance, using this opensource and free solution. And It is very difficult to meause the value of the information of a laptop.

Comment Re:Availability zones (Score 2) 112

From: http://aws.amazon.com/es/ec2/
Availability Zones are distinct locations that are engineered to be insulated from failures in other Availability Zones and provide inexpensive, low latency network connectivity to other Availability Zones in the same Region. By launching instances in separate Availability Zones, you can protect your applications from failure of a single location.

Better than use different region, I think it is better have multiple cloud providers...

Comment Availability zones (Score 1) 112

What is more scaring for me, is that Amazon tell you that they have multiple availavility zones on each zone, and recomends you to distribute replicated servers, on each of this zones, for example I have a project with the master database in one zone, and the replica on the other zone. Why both zones fail?? Are not isolated/independent? Amazon charges you for data transfer between zones. As other says fails the servers, anyone must had backups on other place (S3, or Amazon external).
