BREAKING: AWS Is Down…. Again

Bad news. The AWS Health Dashboard is showing that one of its Elastic Cloud Compute systems is down, specifically in Northern Virginia. The problems started at 4:35 am ET and is affecting the following sites among others:

  • Amazon
  • Hulu
  • Slack
  • Grindr
  • Epic Games Store
  • Samsung Smarthings
  • Rocket League

The cause was apparently a power outage. Amazon is bringing power back online and things should get back to normal soon. But this is the second major outage for AWS in a short amount of time. Thus Amazon will have some explaining to do.
