Amazon suffered a downtime of about one hour on Monday for its main website Amazon.com.
A few users were greeted with the message that the site was being upgraded and was temporarily unavailable. Other saw this error message: “Oops! We’re very sorry, but we’re having trouble doing what you just asked us to do.”
But the site was back to normal as of 12:40 p.m.
Amazon suffered this downtime only a few days after Google outage that lasted for about five minutes. GoSquared, an internet monitoring firm, said that the total global internet traffic suffered a drop of about 40 percent as a result of Google outage. Google has not said anything publicly about the outage.
Amazon has also not offered any comments about the incident. Amazon’s other data center businesses which provide hosting to many high end websites, apps and services remained online and were not affected.
