Posted by iwgcr

Amazon.com, world’s largest online retailer, suffered an outage for 25 minutes at 3  p.m. ET on August 19th.  Although Amazon first reported that the cause is unlclear and AWS is unaffected,  at 3:14 p.m. the same day, AWS Management Console was experiencing elevated error rates across all regions of the world, including North America and Europe. There was also a flagged issue with a North Virginia data center that was quickly resolved.

After the outage was resolved, the AWS Management Console was still experiencing “elevated error rates” during its recovery. Amazon said it experienced ”an increased error rate for CreateTags and DeleteTags APIs in the US-EAST-1 region.”

The affected sites included Audible.com as well as the Amazon Cloud Player.
