Cloud outages result in Amazon apology
A large scale outage of Amazon’s cloud hosting service caused issues with several high-traffic websites and garnered an apology and explanation from the retail giant.
The BBC reports "there was a problem when changing a network configuration, which caused its primary and secondary systems to fail and overload.
"Amazon then had to stop the system and restart it, including physically moving servers.”
Amazon provided a lengthy and detailed technical explanation along with the apology.
