Amazon says it has resolved short internet outage

Amazon.com Inc. said on Wednesday it had recovered from a short outage at its Amazon Web Services cloud unit that affected internet connectivity in two regions of the U.S. West Coast.

AWS' dashboard shows that it has resolved the issue that affects internet connectivity in the Oregon and northern California regions.

The service is normally running and the issue has been resolved, according to the dashboard.

AWS, a public cloud service provider, supports the online infrastructures of many companies, including Netflix.

Services at Netflix, Slack, Amazon's Ring and DoorDash were down, according to Downdetector.com. The outage could have had a widespread impact, according to this.

Updetector tracks outages by collating status reports from a number of sources, including user-submitted errors on its platform.

Amazon's live-streaming site, Twitch, said its services were facing several issues.

A major outage disrupted Amazon's cloud services for several hours last week on the East Coast, which resulted in Netflix, Disney Robinhood and a slew of other services being inaccessible, including Amazon's e-commerce website.

According to tool review website ToolTester, Amazon has had 27 outages in the United States over the past 12 months, excluding last week's outage.
