However, Amazon announced at about 2.43pm that “it has mitigated underlying issue causing network issues and is working toward full recovery across services.”
Before the outage was controlled, however, many warehouses were forced to shut down.
Business Insider reports that a warehouse in the Pacific Northwest saw “anything using a computer” shut down during the outage, leaving employees “bored stiff.”
A small delivery outfit contracted by Amazon told BI that many of their East Coast drivers already on the road when the outage happened around noon had to pull over to the side of the road.
According to the NY Daily News, the issue involved the company’s US-East-1 servers, a hub for Amazon’s cloud computing platform.
People were reporting struggling to login, access Amazon-owned websites, the Amazon app or their AWS console.
