Amazon Web Services Suffers Storm Outage

Amazon Web Services' data center in Northern Virginia went offline on Friday night (June 29) during a severe storm, which knocked out electrical power throughout the Washington D.C. metro area. The facility's back-up generators apparently failed. The disruption impacted sites including Netflix, Pinterest and Instagram for numerous hours.
