Amazon Web Services, which provides hosting for thousands of sites, is experiencing widespread outage issues that have left thousands of services crippled.
The AWS service health dashboard reported as of 11:35 PST the ability to update the dashboard, but the company said it continues to "experience high error rates with S3 in US-EAST-1, which is impacting various AWS services. We are working hard at repairing S3, believe we understand root cause, and are working on implementing what we believe will remediate the issue."
Apple Store also acknowledged that some users are being affected, experiencing problems with the App Store. It's not clear whether they are attributing it to the AWS outage.
Amazon S3 is used by 148,213 Web sites, and 121,761 unique domains, according to TechCrunch, citing data tracked by SimilarTech. The services are used by 0.8% of the top 1 million Web sites.
