More details on Amazon S3 outage

Posted by Brier Dudley

Here's a verbatim statement from Drew Herdener, AWS spokesman, on the outage:

"For one of our services, the Amazon Simple Storage Service, one of our three geographic locations was unreachable for approximately two hours and was back to operating at over 99% of normal performance before 7 a.m. pst. We've been operating this service for two years and we're proud of our uptime track record. Any amount of downtime is unacceptable and we won't be satisfied until it's perfect. We've been communicating with our customers all morning via our support forums and will be providing additional information as soon as we have it."

Still no posts from Werner Vogels, Jeff Barr, AWS blogs. They're probably still working under the hood.

The light of a new day.

The light of
a new day
solicits a blackbird
in the care
of a craving,
in the beautiful
darkness of a
sunny concept,
in the songs
of my heart, like
a tender idea
now reflecting
the straw.

It was fixed this morning, and they know how, and who, and why.

The question now, is how to tell the world. That is what they are all under-the-hood about.
