Amazon Cloud services crash, taking down popular gaming sites with it
Amazon’s EC2 operations are experiencing some issues right now, and some of your favorite major gaming sites like GameSpot aren’t working at the moment.
EC2 has this to say on the outage:
11:45 AM PDT We are continuing to see delays launching, updating and deleting Elastic Beanstalk environments in the US-East-1 Region.
11:06 AM PDT We are currently experiencing elevated API failures and delays launching, updating and deleting Elastic Beanstalk environments in the US-East-1 Region.
This isn’t the first time Amazon’s Cloud has gone down. Back in July it had a major outage where sites like Instagram and Pinterest were not operable for some time.
We’ll keep you up to date on this issue, but if you’re a new comer who is distressing about the gaming sites you frequented going down, then get familiar with Gimme Gimme Games and enjoy your time here!
