Amazon’s Cloud Service Back Online After Major Disruption

Posted by Admin | March 6, 2017 | Telecoms

Several people are having a bumpy ride on the Internet thanks to some cloud turbulence.

An outage at Amazon.com Inc.’s cloud-computing service disrupted internet traffic across the USA on Tuesday, showing the increasing power cloud companies have over large portions of the web.

In the end, there really has not been a major outage like this over at Amazon as far back as I can remember and I would think it would give web masters and business owners pause when depending on a third party service to the point that if it goes down, so does theirs. Eastern and was concentrated on companies on the East Coast using the AWS’s S3 storage system in Northern Virginia.

Amazon said on the cloud service health dashboard that it is “actively working on remediating the issue”, but did not say when the problems would be fixed.

Fortune contacted Amazon and will update this story if it responds.

The downtime caused widespread headaches, affecting – to name but a few – Adobe’s cloud services, Amazon’s Twitch, Docker, GitHub, iFixit, Kickstarter, Slack and Yahoo Mail. However, Amazon said the “dashboard” was fixed and it should begin to show the correct status of its various data center regions.

“We are investigating increased error rates for Amazon S3 requests in the US-EAST-1 Region”, AWS said at the top of its status page.

Update at 2:08 PM PST: As of 1:49 PM PST, we are fully recovered for operations for adding new objects in S3, which was our last operation showing a high error rate”.
