Amazon Web Services Experiencing Major Outage If you had trouble using Instacart, Venmo, and Kindle today, you weren’t alone. Amazon Web Services experienced an outage on Tuesday that took down serval web services. Amazon provides resources for several companies, organizations, universities, and government programs. While Amazon will not identify the issue, the company said that it found the root cause and that it is “actively working towards recovery.” Did you experience any issues from today’s outage? Do you think so many companies relying on one service is a bad thing?
