Akamai Outage, June 17

Nine days after the Fastly outage, a system issue with Cambridge, Mass.-based Akamai Technologies caused internet outages for global airlines, banks, and stock exchanges. The company saw service disruptions for its hosting platform, which helps defend against Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) attacks.

The disruption affected several large companies around the globe, including Southwest Airlines, United Airlines, Commonwealth Bank of Australia, Westpac Bank, and Australia and New Zealand Banking Group, as well as the Hong Kong Stock Exchange’s website. Services for many of the companies impacted were restored within the day.

Downdetector.com showed spikes in complaints about service outages for websites of companies inside the U.S. as well as in a number of other countries including Australia, Germany and India.
