    Some more info:

    Many large websites are currently down due to a major CDN issue. The issue appears to be rooted at the Fastly CDN network.

    Websites currently experiencing issues include Amazon, Reddit, Spotify, and The New York Times. Some websites are completely unavailable, whereas others are having issues loading assets like fonts or images.


    A CDN is a content delivery network that caches data in localized regional servers, allowing websites to serve content faster. Only a handful of CDNs are capable of managing the traffic requirements of big sites, which means a lot of responsibility lies at the hands of very few centralized server networks.

    Failures are generally rare, but when they do happen, they have wide-reaching implications as we are seeing happen right now.

    A lot of commercial high-profile web-apps are impacted, including Twitter, Spotify, PayPal, eBay, Amazon and Reddit. The outages also extends to other important institutions including the UK government’s website. So far, it doesn’t seem like Apple relies on Fastly as its services have stayed up — Apple largely partners with Akamai for its CDN.

    Slowly things are coming back online. It will be interesting to learn what the cause was.

    Update: Some of these sites are now accessible again. On its status page, Fastly said “The issue has been identified and a fix is being implemented.”

    That's one way to get people talking about your company. Shut down the global internet for an hour.

    I prefer human inventions as a main problem with God is that you can't call for support :)
