Amazon Cloud Outage Caused by Storms, Worsened by Software Glitches

Amazon Web Services’ lengthy outage over the weekend after powerful storms through the Mid-Atlantic region knocked out power has put renewed focus on the risks of cloud computing and how users can minimize those risks going forward.

It also has generated promises from Amazon at a time when competition in the booming infrastructure as a service (IaaS) space is growing, as the likes of Google—which in June unveiled its Compute Engine—look to make inroads.

The storms that blew through the Mid-Atlantic region June 29 hit Virginia particularly hard, knocking out power to hundreds of thousands of people. The storms also cut off power to one of Amazon Web Services’ (AWS) 10 data centers on the East Coast, a situation that was exacerbated by problems with backup power at the Virginia facility as well as unexpected software issues that arose during the recovery efforts.
