Back-up power fault to blame for AWS outage in Australia

George Nott | June 13, 2016
Amazon Web Services apologise for ‘unexpected and unusual’ power redundancy failure.

AWS promised to improve the power redundancy system with the addition of extra breakers and fix the latent bug. The fix it said was being tested and was due to be deployed this week.

It recommended customers run their applications across multiple Availability Zones in the region.

“We apologise for any inconvenience this event caused,” AWS said. “We know how critical our services are to our customers’ businesses. We are never satisfied with operational performance that is anything less than perfect.”
