Fastly outage: Why it just broke Amazon, Reddit, Twitch and much of the internet – CNET

Today will be remembered as the day the internet broke — before swiftly being fixed again. On Tuesday morning, many of the websites we rely on daily, including Amazon, Reddit, Twitch, Pinterest and, unfortunately, CNET went offline due to a major outage at a service called Fastly. Everywhere you looked, there were 503 errors and people complaining they couldn’t access key services and news outlets, demonstrating just how much of the internet relies on this largely unheard-of cloud computing service.
