An issue with AWS is impacting a large swath of the internet, with multiple companies experiencing issues.

As the world’s largest cloud provider, AWS helps power some of the web’s biggest names. Unfortunately, that also means an issue with AWS can impact a large number of other companies and services.

That appears to be happening today, with Disney+, PUBG, League of Legends, Coinbase, McDonald’s, Chime, Amazon’s Alexa and others experiencing outages, according to DownDetector.com.

AWS updated its status page, acknowledging the issue.

We are seeing impact to multiple AWS APIs in the US-EAST-1 Region. This issue is also affecting some of our monitoring and incident response tooling, which is delaying our ability to provide updates. We have identified the root cause and are actively working towards recovery.
