Amazon Web Services suffers major outage, impacting several sites, platforms

Amazon Web Services was experiencing issues on Tuesday, causing several other platforms and websites that rely on it to also face apparent outages. 

AWS provides cloud computing services to individuals, universities, governments and companies, including FOX properties. 

Amazon did not immediately comment on the outage, but its official status page was updated at about 11:26 a.m. PT with a message confirming issues.  

"The root cause of this issue is an impairment of several network devices in the US-EAST-1 Region. We are pursuing multiple mitigation paths in parallel, and have seen some signs of recovery, but we do not have an ETA for full recovery at this time," the update reads in part.
