      This is most definitely accurate. Most production incident problems aren't in leetcode, IMO.

      AWS doesn't scale and is too slow.

      Dude, AWS doesn't scale????!!!! Read up on the various companies that AWS is the backbone for and you'll learn the definition of scale.

      Data rate scaling is easy. Especially when you have a CDN network with boxes installed in many ISPs datacenters

    Bloomberg reported that a server reconfiguration led to cascading failures so .. that's pretty vague but the fact that it took down unrelated services like occulus suggests that FB has some serious work to do
