AWS Outage Has Affected Large Portions of the Internet

Summary

An AWS outage in US-East-1 Region has impacted many services on the internet, from Roku to various newspapers.

“Kinesis has been experiencing increased error rates this morning in our US-East-1 Region that’s impacted some other AWS services,” Amazon said in a statement to The Verge. “We are working toward resolution.” And, ironically, in a notice on the AWS Service Health Dashboard, Amazon said the issue has apparently “affected our ability to post updates” to that dashboard.

Quote

It seems the issue is fairly widespread, as a number of apps and services have posted on Twitter about how the AWS outage is affecting them, including Roku, Flickr, Adobe Spark, Spotify-owned Anchor, Glassdoor, Getaround, and iRobot. The Philadelphia Inquirer, Tampa Bay Times, and Capital Gazette have also said that they are having issues with publishing stories due to the outage.

My thoughts

Maybe one company/service shouldn't control so much of the internet.

That explains why all of my incoming requests - whether it be uploading files, loading a new page, etc. are so weird.

Uploading a file causes Chrome to freeze for 5 seconds, then it uploads.

Loading a page doesn't do anything for about 30-60 seconds, then it works.

Cool tech tip inside:

Maybe people should realize that there are more companies on this planet than just Amazon.

Some additional rambling...

 

Almost every time someone asks be to recommend them a piece of hardware for a PC (or something similar) and I send them a Caseking link for example, they ask me whether it is safe to buy from Caseking and if I can't send them an Amazon link, because they don't trust anyone else.

they don't though. Companies buy their service, not the other way around. Its completely up to consumers how many websites are run with aws.

They don't control it, they just hold a strong % of share of the market....but it does have it's benefits.

 

Anyways, things like BGP essentially make the internet quiet vulnerable anyways.
