's cloud services seem to be struggling a bit today, as our friends at SlashGear
are reporting that a failure has brought down a number of huge sites like Netflix, Reddit
, and Foursquare
. The outage, according to Amazon's own Web Service Dashboard
, looks to be the fault of Amazon's EC2 services, but we're pleased to say that things are getting better. Whereas before, EC2's status alerted that "new launches for EBS backed instances are failing," at the moment, the status is "Degraded EBS performance in a single Availability Zone."
