Amazon S3 Storage Down?
Update June 6th – Amazon.com is down – please visit our updated outage page.
Update Saturday – Amazon has posted an update regarding the outage.
Apparently Amazon’s S3 storage hosting is down over thirty minutes as of 8:30AM ET. Most of the images are broken on CN because we use S3 for static file serving. There are several messages on the Amazon Developer Services message board regarding the outage. This morning I planned on posting my excellent experience with S3 so far and how we are using it on CN. I will still make the post, but will add a section on downtime now.
Please report in if you are seeing outages on your end. We will update this post if more details become available.
10:17AM Eastern – Amazon is reporting that everything is back to normal. They will provide more information on what happened later today.
Here’s what it looks like on Twitter – they also use S3 for static file hosting:
