Hello from Colombia, i am using pulumi(beginner level) to deploy resources in AWS , yesterday i had a meetup where i presented some features of Pulumi, a lot of people was interested with this tool but their principal question was : what happen with state of resource if pulumi web fail? i understand that pulumi store the state of resource into the web.

In general, your resources and programs are OK, even if pulumi.com is temporarily unreachable; we do have an SLA of 99.9 for our commercial tiers and if you are interested, please DM me and I can give you more details.

ok, i said that, because here in Colombia a lot of people use terraform and they store his terraform state file in s3(99.999990), the fear to use Pulumi in a production environment is that the state of the project be unreachable and their process of deploy (using IaC) fail because lost the current state.
This was the principal doubt about use Pulimi.

S3 "only" has 99.9 availability.
A lot of people confuse S3's availability guarantee with its durability guarantee of 99.999999999 (eleven 9s).
so, technically, there's no difference hosting state on S3 (terraform) or using pulumi's web state.
