AWS’ Tuesday outage took down major websites and services, including Facebook, Disney+, Chewy and Coinbase as well as Amazon’s own consumer-facing services, like Amazon.com, Ring and Prime Video, as reported by users at Downdetector.com. Service has since been restored, as indicated by Downdetector.com Wednesday morning.

The outage also impacted a slew of other businesses that rely on AWS services, including Ticketmaster, which said it was delaying ticket sales for pop music star Adele’s upcoming concerts. Image hosting service Flickr said it was affected too.

AWS said its network issues impacted multiple services, including Elastic Compute Cloud, AWS Management Console, DynamoDB and Amazon Connect.

ThousandEyes, a Cisco-owned business that provides real-time visibility into outages, said in a blog post that Amazon’s Elastic Compute Cloud service was not available in several areas throughout the United States, Europe as well as Japan, China and countries in the Asia-Pacific region. It said Amazon’s S3 service was also impacted.
