Many of you may have noticed issues connecting to your favourite website/services this morning. Unfortunately an issue with Telstra's networks caused a connection issue with Amazon's hosting - one of the biggest hosting providers - causing many websites to go offline.
The report from Amazon AWS was:
Internet Connectivity -- AP-SOUTHEAST-2
There are confirmed reports of an issue within Telstra's network. This issue is impacting Internet connectivity between some customer networks and AWS Services in the AP-SOUTHEAST-2 Region, as well as Internet connectivity to non-AWS locations. We are working with the provider to determine the scope of the problem and time to resolution.
Full services have now been restored and we will endeavour to keep clients posted on any continuing issues.
