Amazon Web Services suffers another brief outage, back online

Amazon Web Services was back online Wednesday afternoon after a brief service outage, just days after technical issues took the cloud computing giant offline for several hours.

Down Detector noted a spike in outage reports around 11 a.m. ET. The Amazon Web Services Status Dashboard showed connectivity issues for West Coast servers in California and Oregon.

The outage appears to have impacted several well-known services. Amazon-owned streaming giant Netflix, Twitch, and DoorDash were among the platforms to experience issues during the brief outage.

The outage was resolved in less than an hour. Amazon Web Services has confirmed it is back online.

“The problem has been solved and the service is functioning normally,” the dashboard reads.

Last week, Amazon Web Services experienced a multi-hour service outage related to its servers on the east coast. The outage caused a ripple effect at countless businesses ranging from Venmo and the Disney + streaming service to the McDonald’s app.
