Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a widely used cloud platform that experienced a multi-hour outage early this Wednesday which affected not only its websites but also apps and software providers. Most multinational companies use AWS as their cloud platform. But this issue was majorly localized to North America.

However, AWS Support assured that they will resolve this issue as soon as possible, as per the tweet below.

A huge part of the internet dropped offline due to AWS issues yesterday but we rarely see the same when Microsoft Azure and Google cloud have outages. Many AWS user companies tweeted about this outage and Adobe was one of the first users to report the problem. However, this problem was fully resolved as per the news.

We have restored all traffic to Kinesis Data Streams via all endpoints and it is now operating normally. We have also resolved the error rates invoking CloudWatch APIs,” reads an update on the AWS Service Health Dashboard.
