A multi-hour glitch in Amazon Web Services (AWS) is affecting several websites and apps that depend on the service.
At 5.25 PM ET on Wednesday (3.55 AM IST Thursday) Amazon said recovery might “still be a few hours away”.
“We continue to work towards recovery of the issue affecting the Kinesis Data Streams API in the US-EAST-1 Region. We also continue to see an improvement in error rates for Kinesis and several affected services, but expect full recovery to still take up to a few hours,” a statement on the AWS Service Health Dashboard read.
Later, at 7.42 PM ET (6.12 AM IST) it said there were “steady signs of recovery.”
Amazon told The Verge that while the outage is only affecting one of its 23 geographic AWS regions, it has affected “a large number of internet services.”
Amazon Web Services (AWS), Amazon’s internet infrastructure service that is the backbone of many websites and apps, has been experiencing a multi-hour outage on Wednesday that is affecting a large portion of the internet. And a full recovery might still be a few hours away, according to the company’s latest update.
“We continue to work towards recovery of the issue affecting the Kinesis Data Streams API in the US-EAST-1 Region,” Amazon said in a 3:15PM ET statement on its AWS Service Health Dashboard. “We also continue to see an improvement in error rates for Kinesis and several affected services, but expect full recovery to still take up to a few hours.” In a 5:25PM ET update to the dashboard, the company reiterated that a full recovery may take up to a few hours.
Amazon.com (AMZN) – Get Report cloud-computing division on Wednesday suffered an outage that reportedly affected several customers, including Roku (ROKU) – Get Report and Adobe (ADBE) – Get Report.
Amazon Web Services’ status page says that its Kinesis data streaming service was “currently impaired” in the company’s U.S. East 1 region.
The outage was also making it harder to post updates to a closely watched status page, the company said.
Amazon didn’t give a reason for the outage.
Adobe Spark said on Twitter that the outage “is currently impacting Adobe Spark so you may be having issues accessing/editing your projects. We are actively working with AWS and will report when the issue has subsided….We apologize for any inconvenience!”
“We are working to resolve this quickly,” Roku Support said on Twitter. “We are impacted by the widespread AWS outage and hope to get our
“Kinesis has been experiencing increased error rates this morning in our US-East-1 Region that’s impacted some other AWS services,” Amazon said in a statement to The Verge. “We are working toward resolution.” And, ironically, in a notice on the AWS Service Health Dashboard, Amazon said the issue has apparently “affected our ability to post updates” to that dashboard.
A number of apps and services have posted on Twitter about how the AWS outage is affecting them — it seems the issue is fairly widespread:
[status] Identified: Members are receiving an “Oops, something went wrong” error when trying to log in or create an account due to a current AWS outage. We are
(Bloomberg) — Australia’s stock exchange opened for less than half an hour before a data issue forced it to close for the rest of Monday’s session, marring the debut day for an updated trading system.
ASX Ltd. and its technology provider Nasdaq have identified the cause and a plan to fix it, the exchange said in an emailed statement. “A software issue limited to the trading of multiple securities in a single order (combination trading) created inaccurate market data,” it said.
This is the longest shutdown in well over a decade for the exchange.ASX said the issue will be resolved overnight with the market re-opening at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, adding that Monday was the “go-live” day for the refreshed trading system for ASX’s equity market after over a year of testing. The S&P/ASX 200 Index was up 1.2% before trading was suspended at 10:24 a.m.
If there was anything to highlight the obsession Australia has with horse racing, it wasn’t the euthanasia of Anthony Van Dyck during Tuesday’s Melbourne Cup, it was the downing of servers in a data centre used by Tabcorp over the weekend.
At around lunchtime on Saturday, punters across the country were frantically attempting to get their stakes day fix when reports of TAB systems being down at pubs, clubs, agencies, and online began pouring in.
All TAB services, run by Tabcorp, went down at approximately 11:30am AEDT.
“Our wagering facilities are currently unavailable due to a system issue. We are working hard to get this fixed as soon as possible,” TAB wrote on Twitter at 12:44pm AEDT.
Several race meetings, including Rose Hill, were pushed back as authorities awaited TAB to come back online, but the Morphettville races in Adelaide, South Australia, decided to abandon the nine-race card and shift
Virginia’s online voter registration system went down on the worst day possible: the last day that residents are allowed to register to vote.
A federal judge in Richmond has ruled that Virginia must extend online and in-person voter registration until 11:59 p.m. on Oct. 15.
The order comes after a construction project accidentally cut a fiber internet line yesterday that took down several state websites, including the Department of Elections website on the last day of voter registration.
U.S. Judge John A. Gibney Jr. made the ruling early Wednesday morning in a lawsuit brought by several voter rights groups.
“There’s really not a lot of harm to the Commonwealth and the state registrars by extending the period of registration in this case,” Gibney Jr. said in the teleconference hearing, “but there is tremendous harm to the people who want to register to
A federal court has granted to extend Virginia’s voter registration deadline by 48 hours after the state’s Department of Elections website shut down on Tuesday, just hours before the original deadline.
The new deadline to register to vote in Virginia is Thursday, October 15 at 11:59 p.m.
New Virginia Majority Education Fund and a coalition of groups filed a lawsuit on Tuesday in the U.S. District Court in Richmond to extend the deadline for voter registration. They argued that the lack of an extension would disproportionately affect minority groups and younger voters who tend to register on the last day.
Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring also filed a brief on Tuesday asking the court to extend the deadline.
