Amazon says it has resolved connectivity issues for Amazon Web Services servers located in Oregon and California.
Amazon said it resolved issues it identified in the US-WEST-1 Region in Northern California as of 8 a.m. PST, and about 15 minutes later resolved issues in Oregon that were first identified around 7:42 a.m. PST, according to the AWS status dashboard:
Between 7:14 AM PST and 7:59 AM PST, customers experienced elevated network packet loss that impacted connectivity to a subset of Internet destinations. Traffic within AWS Regions, between AWS Regions, and to other destinations on the Internet was not impacted. The issue was caused by network congestion between parts of the AWS Backbone and a subset of Internet Service Providers, which was triggered by AWS traffic engineering, executed in response to congestion outside of our network.
