Amazon Cloud crash takes part of the web offline

NY Times reports issues at Amazon's data centers in Northern Virginia had a ripple effect across the web, as many companies that depend on Amazon's Cloud service were impacted as well. Companies that were affected include Foursquare, Flipboard, Someecards, Airbnb, and many more. Guess this serves as another warning that going cloud adds extra risks.
The companies that were affected by the latest shutdown scrambled to respond.

“Like many other services, we’ve been taken down by the outage,” said Erin Gleason, a spokeswoman for Foursquare, the mobile check-in service. “Both the site and the app are inaccessible right now.”

Ms. Gleason said the company was still awaiting information from Amazon about when its service might be restored.

Another start-up, Airbnb, attempted to reassure its members via Twitter. “Apologies. Our site is having a case of the Mondays,” the company posted.
