Amazon's CTO just ripped whoever's behind the 'Pokemon Go' problems
The adventure game has become crazy-popular since its launch on Wednesday, but server crashes keep rendering it useless for many would-be Ash Ketchums. Hence Amazon's Werner Vogels is stepping in to proffer the services of the company's cloud platform, AWS.
The subtext being AWS is a better and more reliable platform than whatever the game currently uses.
Niantic Labs, which makes"Pokémon Go", is a spinoff from Google / Alphabet, so there's a good chance that it's using Google's cloud platform, which makes it even more of a burn.
John Hanke, the CEO of Niantic, tells Business Insider that the team is hard at work on a fix. No word on whether it will take Vogels up on its offer.
