Amazon is currently experiencing “high error rates with S3 in US-EAST-1,” causing a massive outage for sites, apps, and services across the web. The AWS service health dashboard was also temporarily affected by the outage. Amazon says it is working at repairing S3 and that they believe they have identified the root cause. @awscloud Care to share the architecture of this status page as an anti-pattern?

The outage is affecting many popular sites, such as Quora, Netflix, Splitwise, Business Insider, Giphy, Trello, IFTTT, many publishers’ image hosting, filesharing in Slack, and the Docker Registry Hub.
WordPress businesses are also currently affected, especially those that host customer downloads. WooCommerce customers are currently unable to access downloads they purchased. Similarly Envato customers are having difficulty accessing downloads and content.
Yes, we are affected by #AWS #S3 outage too. S3 is having a snag right now…. Quora, Slack, Envato and millions more are suffering…
