Clouds can cause rainy weather

After launching our first site in Amazon AWS, some months ago, we found a strange issue related to Amazon. The mix of legacy and cloud computing infrastructures led us to some problems: Our CEO could not visit the new site from his home, and some other users reported the same issue.

Our careesma.in's site relies on Amazon AWS infrastructure: We use RDS and S3 to persist data, EC2 for running the services and ELB for balancing the access to our frontends. However, we left some site's services running in our legacy infrastructure, like the DNS service for careesma.in.
