Amazon’s cloud service back up after widespread outage


In this news, we discuss the Amazon’s cloud service back up after widespread outage.

(Reuters) – Inc’s widely used cloud service, Amazon Web Services (AWS), was re-established on Thursday following an outage that affected multiple users ranging from sites Web to software vendors.

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

Amazon Kinesis, which is part of the AWS cloud offerings, collects, processes, and analyzes real-time data and offers insight.

Video streaming device maker Roku Inc, Adobe’s Spark platform, the site Web hosting video Flickr and the Baltimore Sun newspaper were among the victims of the blackout, according to their posts on Twitter.

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

The company did not immediately respond to a request from Reuters for comment on the cause of the outage.
