All the major websites in the internet are down on Tuesday afternoon due to Amazon Web Service S3 Servers issue. According to the company’s Twitter handle, Amazon was experiencing “high error rates” in its S3 web services. It’s not immediately clear what was causing the error messages.
Amazon AWS posted the following message on its web services page, “We’re continuing to work to remediate the availability issues for Amazon S3 in US-EAST-1. AWS services and customer applications depending on S3 will continue to experience high error rates as we are actively working to remediate the errors in Amazon S3.”
Amazon Web Services (AWS) is one of the largest cloud computing services in the world, as lakhs of websites and web pages rely on the service for back-end processes.
S3 is experiencing high error rates. We are working hard on recovering.

Well till this issue is resolved we can only wait and hope that this never happens again and the company solves this problem once and for all.
