Amazon’s Cloud Crashed Overnight, And Brought Several Other Companies Down Too

http://newenterprise.allthingsd.com/...nies-down-too/

Quote:
The Amazon Web Services status dashboard is reporting an ongoing failure of its EC2 service on its servers based in Northern Virgina. Foursquare, Quora, and Reddit are reported to have been affected. I’ve got a call in to Amazon asking what happened and will update this post as more information becomes available.
This actually occurred last night, not tonight, but still seems to be going on, at least on some sites. http://status.aws.amazon.com/

Probably wouldn't be too happy in the near future if that exciting new e-novel I just bought in the cloud went offline for a couple days

Yeah I doubt streaming of books is going to take off anytime soon, music interruptions are annoying, but the sudden disappearance of pages of text

What would be even weirder is having the books stored on your ereader but having to authenticate yourself with a remote server in order to read them

That is strange. Incidentally the entire worldwide Playstation network has crashed too and also for unknown reasons. I suppose it's only a coincidence.

I wonder if it is more than that. Fictfact.com has been down since yesterday also.

Ditto.

And I would never put my entire business on someone else's hardware either. It's beautiful while it works, but catastrophic when it doesn't... you can't just roll up your sleeves and get to work on the problem when it does go tits-up.

Cloud, schmoud.

Fictfact and Shelfari are both hosted by Amazon and that's why their sites are down. Hopefully they'll both be back soon.

Thanks for the info. It doesn't help me not missing, but it is good to be informed.

Same here, I wish they would switch from amazon. They're always having problems.

Just keep in mind, hosting your own site is hardly bullet-proof either, especially if you can't afford to keep a bunch of web and DB admins on an electronic leash. And, of course, lot of companies rely on hosted services anyway.

By the way, reddit is back up. So there goes your productivity.
