At approximately 10:38 a.m. PT today, Amazon Web Services (AWS) reported experiencing performance issues in a single availability zone in the US EAST-1 region. They later reported the problem expanding to other Eastern regions. As part of these issues, the Blinksale marketing site went down along with a number of other websites, although the application remained unaffected.
Our engineering team worked to fully restore the Blinksale home page which serves as an entry point for many users, and as of 1:46 p.m. PT, the site is back up and running. To be cautious, we are continuing to monitoring the situation.
We have no reason to believe any user data was impacted as part of the outage.
We will post updates here as soon as they are available.
