Amazon Web Services down for third time in a MONTH as outage causes issues for Slack and Epic Games Store

AMAZON Web Services issues were reported on Wednesday morning for the third time in a month.

Users claimed they were experiencing issues connecting to online services like Slack and Epic Games Store.

The possible outage began at around 7:08 a.m. and has only become more widespread since 8:23 a.m., according to Down Detector.

At least 1,443 reports have been sent out from users.

This is not the first time Amazon has faced shortages this month.

As of 9:15 a.m., Amazon services have been restored to "all instances and network devices within the affected data center," according to Amazon's corporate team.

The team added that Amazon services were "seeing recovery for the majority of EC2 instances and EBS volumes."

Some of the apps affected by the outage include Slack, Asana, and Epic Games Store.

Slack reported problems such as “experiencing issues with file uploads, message editing, and other services.”

Similarly, Asana said the problems consisted of a “major outage,” with “many of our users unable to access Asana.”

Epic Games Store said “Internet services outages” are “affecting logins, library, purchases, etc.”

This is the third time within a month that Amazon Web Services (AWS) has had a prominent effect on online services and apps.

One of the earlier AWS incidents even ended up taking down streaming giants like Netflix and Disney Plus, as well as smart home devices from Ring and Wyze.
