Amazon Outage Ends After a Brief Period

Amazon Outage Ends After a Brief Period
Forbes

It was a Manic Monday alright and we all know many people already hate the first day of the week. A power outage at Amazon.com caused many buyers to miss out on their novels and items of interest. The electronic commerce website was out of order for some time and it really shook up the status quo. For half an hour some faults in the system caused a complete cyberspace breakdown. At 3:32pm eastern things got back to normal that starts at around 3pm eastern . Is It Down Right Now? has posted the whole status report of Amazon outage. Everyone heaved a sigh of relief. For the half hour, which appeared to be a nightmare to those who frequented Amazon.com, they got a standard message expressing an apology from the site. 

According to the execs at Amazon, its AWS Management Console and Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud were the culprits in the whole scale crash that occurred for 30 minutes. Amazon was earning close to $10,000 every 5 seconds. That amounted to $118,000 per minute. So it was somewhat of a loss though not as much as it would have been if the power outage had continued for longer. Google underwent a 4 minute crash on Friday too and that led to a lot of loss in traffic. Thus it happens that when big firms undergo power zaps, the fallout affects many others. The Amazon outage affected only consumers in the United States and Canada though.
