If you're wondering why you can't access Facebook, Ring, Disney Plus, Amazon Prime Video, and more online services, you aren't the only one. At the time of writing Downdetector lists a whole raft of services as experiencing issues — and it all seems to be thanks to Amazon Web Services.
Amazon has confirmed that it experiencing an issue and that some customers might be able to access region-specific consoles to try and work around the issue while things are fixed properly.
We are experiencing API and console issues in the US-EAST-1 Region. We have identified root cause and we are actively working towards recovery. This issue is affecting the global console landing page, which is also hosted in US-EAST-1. Customers may be able to access region-specific consoles going to https://console.aws.amazon.com/. So, to access the US-WEST-2 console, try https://us-west-2.console.aws.amazon.com/
That might suggest that those who aren't impacted are already accessing services via other geographic locations and it's likely these outages aren't impacting 100% of users as a result.
It sure doesn't look great, though!
