Internet outage takes down Amazon, Reddit, Guardian, New York Times, and more websites


Multiple outages hit websites across the globe on Tuesday morning. A number of leading media websites such as New York Times Guardian went down showing ‘Error 303 Unavailable’ messages. The UK government’s website -gov.UK- also faced downtime. This happened after services from the private Content-Delivery Network (CDN) ‘Fastly’ went down.

Quora was also down for users in India, though it appears to be back now. Other sites impacted were Stack Overflow, GitHub, gov.uk, Hulu, HBO Max, Quora, PayPal, Vimeo, and Shopify, according to Engadget.

Guardian’s UK technology correspondent Alex Hern wrote that the “massive internet outage” has been traced to a failure in a content delivery network (CDN) run by Fastly.” Fastly, is a cloud computing services provider. It runs an “edge cloud that is supposed to speed up loading times for websites. It protects them from denial-of-service attacks, and also help them deal with bursts of traffic.”

Fastly noted an error on its status update page at 4.28 pm IST. They stated: “we’re currently investigating potential impact to performance with our CDN services.” On its status page, Fastly soon said that the issue has been identified and a fix has been implemented.
