AWS: what’s going on?
The recent AWS re: Invent event took place last month and has brought a lot of business-serving features and products that people are eagerly awaiting for improvement. However, while there are many exciting and promising versions of the storefront, many people have recently encountered several issues with the service.
Reports of various issues for the well-known e-commerce company’s web services surfaced earlier this month and have become a persistent problem in the tech landscape. Amazon has solved it twice already, but the third time says a lot about its current issues that need to be addressed by the business but remain recurring.
Amazon hasn’t explained much why it is having this problem now.
People are mostly affected by this as its partners, and those who use its service are massive, also affected by these interruptions which remain unresolved. For now, Amazon is trying to fix the issue and help resolve this case, but it won’t be long before people start questioning it after another issue persists.
