Amazon hat im Dezember wiederholt Internet Abstürze verursacht

By Ninian Carter

December 23, 2021 - Amazon Web Services (AWS), das Web-hosting Service, das große Teile des Internets versorgt, ist im Dezember dreimal abgestürzt und hat zu stundenlangem Ausfall von u.a. Disney+, Netflix, Starbucks und Zoom geführt.

Amazon Web Services (AWS) which provide cloud computing infrastructure to individuals, universities, governments and companies around the world, has suffered three outages in December.

Websites and online services for a wide range of companies have been taken offline for hours, including Amazon, Apex Legends, Coinbase, Disney+, Epic Games store, Hulu, McDonalds, Netflix, PlayStation Network, U.S. Postal Service, Ring, Roku, Slack, Snapchat, Starbucks, Tinder and Zoom.

The outages are linked to three cloud regions where Amazon has huge data centres – US-West-1, US-West-2 and US-EAST-1. Altogether, downtime from repeated AWS glitches surpass 10 hours in December and are a stark reminder of what can happen when a single company controls so much Internet infrastructure.
