New York (The Verge) — AWS outage has taken down a big chunk of the internet theverge.com/2020/11/25/217….
AWS, Amazon’s internet infrastructure service that is the backbone of many websites and apps, is experiencing a major outage affecting a big chunk of the internet. Affected services include Roku, Flickr, Anchor, and Getaround.
AWS is one of the most widely-used cloud computing services in the world, so any issues can have major ripple effects for other web services and apps.
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, and Spotify-owned Anchor. — Jay Peters/@verge
