It was an Amazon cloud product that facilitated the LinkedIn troubles. Is the cloud really safe?

First, I'm not sure how Amazon contributed to the LinkedIn failure. I don't
know if the failure was _because_ something was a cloud product. Or did a
security breach happen on something that just happened to run on the cloud
but could just as easily have been hacked no matter where it ran? (If you
have a pointer to more info, please let me know.)

I do not understand the technology involved, but the Amazon cloud has some involvement in hacking.
