Major Amazon S3 Outage Hits Internet
FEBRUARY 28, 2017
An outage at Amazon Web Services is causing major downtime across the cloud this morning, as sites which rely on the cloud storage service have been unable to reliably connect all morning. Although Amazon's web services are widely used by Southern California tech startups, it's unclear how many are being affected by the downtime. S3 is used by many websites for storing data, images, and video.
