AWS US East-1 Region Experienced Several Outages, What could’ve been the Cause? let us discuss!


    AWS US east-1 experienced an outage yesterday, let us discuss what could have been the problem and what amazon did to solve it

    Latest Update (6:23 PM PST): We’d like to provide an update on the issue affecting the Kinesis Data Streams API, and other dependent services, within the US-EAST-1 Region. We have now fully mitigated the impact to the subsystem within Kinesis that is responsible for the processing of incoming requests and are no longer seeing increased error rates or latencies. However, we are not yet taking the full traffic load and are working to relax request throttles on the service. Over the next few hours we expect to relax these throttles to previous levels. We expect customers to begin seeing recovery as these throttles are relaxed over this timeframe.
