Equinix

Data center powerhouse Equinix lost power in its Ashburn, Va., campus during a Nor'easter storm that slammed the area on March 2.

The power outage resulted in a networking failure, interrupting service to customers that co-locate on Equinix infrastructure for two roughly 10-minute intervals that morning.

Confusing the matter, the AWS peering facility's connectivity failures happened around the same time a nearby AWS region (engulfed in the same storm) lost its Direct Connect interlink to nine data centers on the Equinix Ashburn campus, and two CoreSite facilities near Reston, Va.

The dual failures made it unclear who was to blame for a series of AWS service disruptions affecting customers with hybrid infrastructure.

Atlassian, Twilio, and Capital One all struggled with downtime that day.
