Glitch in Amazon web servers causes problems for popular sites

If you use Amazon's Web services and your site crashed on Feb. 28/17 here is why:
Quote:
Amazon’s S3 cloud service experienced an outage of several hours on Tuesday that caused problems for many websites and mobile apps that rely on it, including Medium, Business Insider, Slack, Quora and Giphy.

More info on what happened with the Amazon outage Feb 28/17:
Quote:
...Science Alert notes: "While the experience of seeing so many sites impacted or offline is similar to last October's massive internet outage that took down Twitter, Reddit, and Amazon itself – the causes are quite different.

In October, hackers initiated a DDOS cyber attack on a major web company that affected hundreds of websites (Twitter, Reddit, and Amazon among others) that relied on the internet services of that web company. But yesterday's internet frenzy was likely due to a software bug in AWS' system that showed up at one of their S3 (simple storage service) sites in Northern Virginia, a region that is sort of known as the heart of the internet...
