Amazon Web Services outage hits internet and app functions

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-affiliated businesses were not spared either. Users of Ring, the Amazon-owned smart home security camera company, couldn’t log in and watch video at points, while the outage also hit The Washington Post, which Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos owns privately.

“We are actively working toward full recovery for all affected services, and will continue to provide updates regularly as we have new information to share,” Amazon wrote on the update page for the AWS incident, which appears to be linked to a series of Amazon facilities in northern Virginia.

China’s No. 2 smartphone maker reported overall revenue rose 34.5% to 72.2 billion yuan ($11 billion) in the September quarter, its fastest pace of growth in two years. It grabbed market share from Huawei Technologies Co. when American sanctions deepened particularly in overseas markets from Europe to India, which yielded more than half of its revenue for the first time. But internet services like music and video grew just 8.7%, down from the previous quarter’s 29% as the Covid-19 boom in Chinese online activity tapered off.

Several brokerages cut their price targets on Xiaomi, citing its 140% run-up since the start of 2020 and warning that investors may be underestimating Huawei’s ability
