Several large websites using Amazon Web Services are facing outages including Foursquare, Quora, Reddit and Heroku. Amazon Web Services currently has issues with North Virginia servers which report ‘instance connectivity, latency and error rates’ for Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud and ‘Database instance connectivity and latency issues’ Amazon Relational Database Service.
The Reddit pages say ‘Amazon is currently experiencing a degradation. They are working on it’ with a video and a ‘simulated reddit’ for withdrawal symptoms linking to several Google websites and Github.
The current status can be viewed at the AWS service dashboard. HootSuite and Mobypicture are also just some of the other sites effected. View some of the ‘down’ pages below.
Update: Websites still offline. Amazon status still reporting downtime. 13:12 (GMT)
