An Amazon EC2 network outage today resulted in a brief period of time where the WebSync Cloud service was unavailable. Specifically, both the WebSync 3 and 4 clusters were inaccessible between 1:48pm and 2:01pm UTC (total of 13 minutes). The connectivity issues in the data centre were addressed quickly by Amazon staff, and everything is working well again.
Statement from Amazon:
7:28 AM PDT Between 6:47 AM and 7:10 AM PDT we experienced increased launch failures for EC2 Instances, degraded EBS volume performance and connectivity issues for some instances in a single Availability Zone in the US-EAST-1 Region. The issue has been resolved and the service is operating normally.
The event was logged by our Pingdom monitoring account, and has brought our uptime for the month down to 99.97%:
Sadly, this ends our streak of 20 consecutive 100% uptime months, just shy of 2 years.
