During the early hours of today, a number of online platforms and applications relying on Amazon Web Services infrastructure encountered disruptions and decreased performance. Notable names affected include Slack, Asana, and the Epic Games Store, facing issues with user logins, data transfers, storage operations, and general accessibility. Investigations revealed that all these disturbances stemmed from a service disruption within Amazon Web Services.

As per the official status report from Amazon Web Services, a power failure occurred in a specific data center, leading to the lower impact compared to previous incidents. Power has been successfully restored to the affected data center, although Amazon has advised that some services might still exhibit slow response times for a few hours.

This marks the third instance this month where a power issue has impacted an AWS data center, reflecting onto the clients and services linked to it. Previously, a similar outage disrupted streaming platforms like Netflix and Disney+, along with affecting Wi-Fi integrated security devices such as Ring cameras. The exact cause of these power failures remains unknown, or at least undisclosed by Amazon.
