Amazon Web Services outage brings some delivery operations to a standstill

Posted by in category: cryptocurrencies

Disney+, Coinbase, Slack and other websites were taken down for some users as a result of the AWS outage.

“We are seeing improvement in availability across most AWS services,” the notice stated. “We continue to work toward full recovery for all impacted AWS Services and API operations.”

Among the services that reported issues as a result of the outage were Disney’s streaming subscription service, Disney+, Netflix, Slack, Ticketmaster, stock trading app Robinhood, and Coinbase, the largest cryptocurrency exchange in the U.S.

The outage also brought down critical tools used inside Amazon. Warehouse and delivery workers, along with drivers for Amazon’s Flex service, reported on Reddit that they couldn’t access the Flex app or the AtoZ app, making it impossible to scan packages or access delivery routes.
