On December 7, a week ago, the DownDetector website reported more than 30,000 incidents that began with a global drop in AWS servers, Amazon Web Services, which provide cloud services to hundreds of well-known platforms and networks.
Global drop in Internet services
Therefore, if this platform that provides hosting services falls, those that hire its services fall by default, and that translated into problems on Facebook, Tinder, League of Legends, Google, Disney +, etc. Guess what? AWS has re-registered a problem with its service …
For the second website in just a week, Amazon Web Services has made a mess again, and due to a failure in your server service It has dragged with it a large number of websites, platforms, services, etc., such as:
- Amazon itself
- PlayStation Network
- League of Legends
- Clash Royale
- Xbox Live
Less than an hour down, but what a fall
While last week’s outage occurred on the east coast of the US – it was hardly noticed in Spain -, reports around 4 p.m. today showed that connections to the company’s servers were failing this time on the West Coast -the left part of the map of North America.
Amazon’s network of server farms powers more services than you can imagine, but the most visible sign of trouble appeared when Twitch, the Amazon-owned livestreaming platform, went down. A tweet from his support account read: “We are aware of various issues affecting the Twitch services. “
There are also reports of disconnections for services such as those mentioned above: League of Legends, Valorant, DoorDash, Duo, and Slack, while players experienced disconnections and server issues on Nintendo Online, Xbox Live, and PlayStation Network.
What will happen at Christmas?
A message on the AWS status page initially said: “We are investigating Internet connectivity problems ·. Now, Amazon reports that “[hemos] solved the problem affecting Internet connectivity “, and tAll services appear as operational. Frankly, we hope it continues like this because it is the second time in just 7 days.
Also in Spain this second fall has been noticed, but again it has not hit as hard as in the USA. The question is what will happen next week, since if services have fallen in early and mid-December, what will happen in the middle of the week of Christmas Eve and Christmas, with millions of people on vacation using social networks at the peak hour of the anus?
