Amazon crash takes down Netflix and Mississippi Business Journal, among thousands of others

As noted by The Daily Beast, Amazon isn’t just an online shopping destination. Apparently, it controls the whole Internet. Amazon, it turns out, is one of the Web’s biggest cloud-based service providers, and a temporary outage Monday affected some of its star clients, including Netflix, Reddit, Flipboard, Pinterest, Fast Company, The Daily Beast, and yes, the Mississippi Business Journal, which saw its home page go down. Amazon blames the crash on “connectivity issues and degraded performance” from some of its servers. The same Twitter user who boasted connections to hacktivist group Anonymous claimed responsibility, but it’s worth noting that the same person also took credit for last week’s GoDaddy crash, which the company said was not true.

We, at the Mississippi Business Journal, are still working through many of these issues.
