Amazon Comes Clean on Dublin Data Center Outage
Amazon has issued a detailed summary about the events that occurred with its Dublin data center outage.
As a result, AWS will deploy environmentally isolated PLCs and add redundant systems to prevent future outages. In addition, the company will overhaul backup systems to allow snapshots to be restored to a server directly rather than moved from another machine. AWS also vowed to improve its communication with customers during outages and plans to provide more detailed updates in response to similar events going forward, says InformationWeek.
