  • Amazon Web Services down again?

    On Monday 22nd Oct, the websites hosted on AWS were facing issues.

    The issues that hindered Amazon Web Services' product Elastic Compute Cloud popularly known as EC2 didn't crash the cloud. But EC2 was having "degraded performance" affecting a number of servers.

    Many popular web companies were impeded by Amazon's issues, including Reddit, Pinterest, Foursquare, Airbnb to name a few.

    Earlier also the EC2 had faced an outage because of a thunderstorm which resulted in many popular sites like Instagram and Netflix going down.

    Just so you know....
    Amazon hasn’t offered up an official explanation in writing but a spokesperson did point out that the outage was not the result of a hacking attempt as claimed by Anonymous. Tera Randall from Amazon said the problems were limited to a single zone of the company’s service, thus only affecting customers in that zone.
    A quick check of most services reveals business as usual but there’s no doubt that some are a bit concerned by the outage. After all, this isn’t the first time that Amazon Web Services have suffered massive outages.

    The bigger they are, the harder they fall......

      Thanks for the information. However i did not mean to say that it was due to any hack attempt. Rather what i wanted to highlight was that the services go down time and again.
      And as rightly said by you this isn't the first time and it does affect a lot of people that are associated with he company.
