Multiple outages hit websites across the globe as the internet down, on Tuesday morning, affecting news websites and social media platforms.
Amazon, PayPal and Etsy and Reddit have all been affected.
The Internet down
Separately, Amazon.com Inc’s retail website also seemed to face an outage. Amazon was not immediately available to comment.
Leading websites operated by news outlets including the Financial Times, the Guardian, the New York Times and Bloomberg News were down.
Fastly broke the internet
Fastly, a cloud computing services provider has been identified as the cause of the problem.
The company runs an “edge cloud”, which is designed to speed up loading times for websites, protect them from denial-of-service attacks, and help them deal with bursts of traffic.
