AWS sees another outage, now resolved

Amazon Web Services said it has resolved connectivity issues on the West Coast after outages for several websites and services were reported Wednesday.

The Seattle-based cloud service provider gave the status update for the US-WEST-1 and US-WEST-2 regions a little after 11 a.m. Eastern Time on Wednesday, only eight days after AWS experienced an outage with its US-EAST-1 region that brought down major sites and services for several hours.

In the latest update, AWS said connectivity within its northern California and Oregon data centers were “not affected by this event” and that services are now “operating normally.”

Users on Downdetector.com reported outages for AWS and other Amazon-owned services like Twitch, Amazon.com and Ring Wednesday morning. Users also reported issues services for Intuit Quickbooks, Okta, Cisco-owned Duo Security and Doordash, the latter of which acknowledged issues.

ThousandEyes, a business owned by Cisco that provides real-time visibility into outages, said it had detected outages for applications run by Okta, Workday, PagerDuty, Splunk and Lattice on its real-time internet outages map. The service also pointed to network issues with Microsoft Wednesday morning.

The previous outage was due to an “automated scaling activity” that triggered a “latent issue” in a “request back-off behaviors” code path used by networking clients, AWS previously reported.
