  • Amazon S3 cloud storage is down on the east coast

    Posted on February 28th, 2017 at 12:49 Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    The Register:

    “Amazon Web Services is scrambling to recover from a cockup at its facility in Virginia, US, that is causing its S3 cloud storage to fail.

    The internet giant did not provide details on the cause of the breakdown that is plaguing storage buckets hosted in the US-East-1 region. The malady has led to major sites, including Imgur and Medium, falling offline, missing images or running like treacle. Just to stress: this is one S3 region that has become inaccessible, yet web apps are tripping up and vanishing as their backend evaporates away.”

    I haven’t seen any problems with AskWoody yet, but my fingers are crossed, wood duly knocked.
