Amazon Cloud Goes Down Again

The forecast calls for a no clouds anywhere. Sucks to be Foursquare,, Heroku, Flipboard and everyone else that uses Amazon's cloud computing platform.

Amazon reported errors in eight of its web services stemming from outages in northern Virginia. The failures began just before 11 am on Monday. By 2 p.m., many of the problems had been fixed, but Amazon was still reporting issues with its Elastic Compute Cloud, its database service, and Elastic Beanstock, a service that helps developers speed up the rollout of new software.
