Amazon Web Services, Again

Amazon Web Services went down in its Northern Virginia market Oct. 22, causing website outages in an unknown number of companies, including Reddit, Pinterest and Airnb.

The outages affected Elastic Beanstock services, followed by announcements of service interruptions with its Management Console for Elastic Beanstock Services, Relational Database Service, ElasticCache, Elastic Compute Cloud and CloudSearch.

The event raised questions on whether Amazon's cloud infrastructure at the Northern Virginia data centers needs to be upgraded.
