AWS recovers after massive cloud outage

Amazon.com’s widely used cloud service, Amazon Web Services was back up on Thursday following an outage that affected several users ranging from websites to software providers.

“We have restored all traffic to Kinesis Data Streams via all endpoints and it is now operating normally,” the company said in a status update.

Amazon Kinesis, a part of AWS’ cloud offerings, collects, processes and analyses real-time data and offers insights.

Video-streaming device maker Roku, Adobe’s Spark platform and photo-hosting website Flickr were among those hit by the outage, according to their posts on Twitter.

AWS said it had identified the cause of the outage and taken action to prevent a recurrence, according to the status update.

The company did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the cause of the outage.  — Reported by Radhika Anilkumar, (c) 2020 Reuters
