Amazon restores services after power outage hits data center
Several popular services like Hulu, Slack and epic games have returned to normal after Amazon restored the issues at its data center.
According to Reuters, one of Amazon's data servers on the US East Coast experienced a brief power outage, leading to several internet-based service providers experiencing downtime.
"The issue has been resolved and the service is operating normally," AWS said.
Amazon earlier said the outage had affected its platform that provides computing capacity to cloud network operated by its unit, Amazon Web Services (AWS).
Office messaging app Slack had said it was experiencing issues with file uploads, message editing, and other services. Users also experienced problems, using popular image sharing platform Imgur.
"We can confirm a loss of power within a single data center within a single Availability Zone (USE1-AZ4) in the US-EAST-1 Region. This is affecting availability and connectivity to EC2 instances that are part of the affected data center within the affected Availability Zone," Amazon wrote at the time of the incident.
A major outage in the same region earlier this month brought down streaming platforms Netflix and Disney+, trading app Robinhood as well as Amazon.com Inc's e-commerce website.
