Internet outage knocks some of the largest websites offline

Many popular websites and apps around the world went down Tuesday after Fastly, a major content delivery network reported a large outage.

Fastly supports news sites and apps like Shopify, the Guardian, the New York Times, and many others. It also provides content delivery for Twitch, Pinterest, HBO Max, Hulu, Reddit, Google, PayPal, Spotify and other services. Other major internet platforms and sites including Amazon, Target, and the UK government website — Gov.uk — were affected.

Fastly said it was investigating “the potential impact to performance with our CDN services,” according to its website.

Most of Fastly’s coverage areas were facing “Degraded Performance”, the website showed.

Separately, Amazon.com Inc’s retail website also seemed to be down. Amazon was not immediately available to comment.

It appears the outage did not affect every cloud hosting provider…
