Amazon Web Services (AWS), a core provider of internet infrastructure services, is going through a major outage today, and the service's spotty uptime is now causing huge issues at thousands of other online services across the internet. Almost all major cloud-based software app that rely on AWS for their backend are currently impacted, from Adobe Spark to Roku, and from Flickr to Autodesk.
In a statement an Amazon spokesperson said:
"Kinesis has been experiencing increased error rates this morning in our US-East-1 Region that's impacted some other AWS services. We are working toward resolution. CloudWatch metrics and events are also affected, with elevated PutMetricData API error rates and some delayed metrics. While EC2 instances and connectivity remain healthy, some instances are experiencing delayed instance health metrics, but remain in a healthy state. AutoScaling is also experiencing delays in scaling time due to CloudWatch metric delays. For customers affected by this, we recommend manual scaling adjustments to AutoScaling groups."
AWS is the largest provider of rented computing power and software services, and its data centers serve as the invisible foundation of much of the internet.
