Widespread effects of Amazon storage outage

0 comments

Some of Amazon’s cloud storage experienced outages yesterday, bringing down some of the world’s biggest websites and services.
The breakdown affected storage buckets hosted in the US-East-1 region, and caused outages on sites including Imgur, Medium and the Docker Registry Hub.
The cloud services giant says the services have all been restored now.
The problem affected both front-end operations and back-end data processing.
Ironically, it appears Amazon was unable to warn customers about the outage because its own dashboards were affected, along with monitoring sites that would have normally sent out an alarm.
