Amazon Web Services Failure Takes Down Reddit

RedditThe social news website Reddit was one of the websites impacted when Amazon Web Services servers began experiencing problems. The problems lingered into a second day today. You can find the latest status reports here.

The L.A. Times reports that Reddit was running an alert on its homepage Friday that read, "Reddit is in 'emergency read-only mode' right now because Amazon is experiencing a degradation. They are working on it, but we are still waiting for them to get to our volumes. You won't be able to log in. We're sorry and will fix the site as soon as we can."

The alert appears to be gone from Reddit now.
