Amazon Web Services is the cloud services arm of Amazon, and its Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) is used by everyone from Netflix to Reddit. When it goes down — or experiences any type of increased latency or errors — it causes major issues downstream, preventing content from loading on web pages and causing requests to fail.

Massive Internet Outage Sweeping Northeast


“We’ve identified the issue as high error rates with S3 in US-EAST-1,” Amazon explains on its services tracking page, adding that the issue “is also impacting applications and services dependent on S3. We are actively working on remediating the issue.”


I had no idea an Amazon failure could cause all of this. This article is as of 2 hours ago.

Throw your stuff in the cloud, they said.

The cloud never goes down, they said.

Sounds like informational engineering to me.

Step 1: cause major internet outage
Step 2: convince the masses to dump their data on the cloud
Step 3: NSA compromises the cloud
Step 4: NWO uses our own data against us

I say # the cloud and # Amazon

Fortunately I am not in New Jersey right now, I'm in Reno, so I can freely access all the important sites I typically view which are critical to my 5 times a day happiness.

Why would being unable to access the cloud make people want to store on the cloud?

Good call, I suspect you're right on the. Money.

Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't they just say that the cloud never goes down?

This is just a local event in the northeastern US?
That would seem to imply that "the net" lacks expected redundancy?

Try sitting on your hand until it goes numb, or just try using your left hand.

It is looking like a little more now.

BBC


US government services such as the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) were also affected.To varying degrees it (AWS S3) serves around 150,000 sites and services around the world, mostly in the US.

Could this be why I can't get any sales totals on my Restaurant's point of sale system?

Was a DDoS attack, the servers that run our back end were affected earlier today and I could not do anything at our property; rent/vacate units, take payments, update customer information, etc.

It has since abated and now we have full functionality restored, but for a little bit it was problematic.

It affected routers and Network Operation Centers across the east coast.
