How is everyone being impacted by the AWS outage today? I know here at SolarWinds, Thwack is having a couple of backed issues, and other SAAS apps are being impacted as well. Being the geek that I am, I wanting to see how bad it was. I tried to spin up a new instance in their US-EAST-1 region and could not do it (surprise surprise) So, I did the next best thing I could think of was and setup Netpath services into a website I knew was being impacted www.isitdownrightnow.com (ironic huh)
WOW. I am not a networking guy, but dang that's a lot of ways in, to bad that NetPath shows that the route into AWS is good. Next up is Pingdom.
Sure enough it shows it as down.
So how did/is the AWS outrage impacting you?
