Amazon Web Service (AWS), a subsidiary of the giant “Amazon”, which specializes in cloud computing services adapted to the needs of companies and individuals, suffered a technical failure on Wednesday, according to a post on its website.
The problem affects many companies that rely on AWS’s Internet services.
AWS indicated in an updated post on its website that it had noticed “improvements” as it sought to solve the problem within “a few hours”.
A spokesman for “Amazon” had previously told “Agence France Presse” that the problem came from “Kinesis”, which is a real-time data transmission service that has witnessed “an increase in the rate of errors. This affected other services at AWS.”
According to some media, the New York subway was affected by this problem as well.
And CNBC reported that Adobe was affected by the malfunction, but not “Apple” and “Slack.”
“It is impossible for customers to write down or read data on Kinesis,” the AWS publication said. The company did not clarify if this holiday affects countries other than the United States.
AWS indicates on its website that it offers “more than 175 complete services from data centers around the world to millions of customers, including startups from the most dynamic in the world and large groups and federal agencies, which use AWS to reduce Costs and acceleration of innovations.
