AWS outage takes down large portions of the internet


Services around the globe have been affected by a major cloud computing outage at Amazon Web Services (AWS).

Amazon’s cloud computing unit experienced a multi-hour outage that affected many other sites and services on Wednesday. As reported by The Verge, an Amazon spokesperson explained in an email that only one of its 23 geographic AWS regions (US-East-1) was experiencing issues at the time. However, the outage was significant enough to take out a large number of other sites and online services that rely on the company’s cloud computing arm.
