According to outage tracking website Downdetector.com, Amazon.com Inc.’s services, including Amazon Web Services (AWS), Prime Video and its e-commerce website, were shut down for thousands of users on Tuesday.
Dowindetector, which has reported more than 14,000 cases of problems with Amazon, collects status reports from a number of sources, including errors submitted by users on its platform, and tracks the discrepancies.
Disruptions can affect a large number of users.
“We are experiencing API and console issues in the US-EAST-1 region,” Amazon said in a report on its Services Health Dashboard, identifying the causes and working to resolve the issue.
This will be the third setback for the company this year.
In June, users experienced a brief disruption to Amazon platforms, including Alexa and Prime Video, before the services were restored. In July, e-commerce Behemoth experienced a disruption to its online store service, which lasted about two hours and affected more than 38,000 users.
