Frequent internet outages

Major internet outages seem to be occurring frequently these days. Just last month, on June 8, a similar incident hit some of the most popular services including Reddit, Twitch, and Amazon and also popular news websites worldwide. The internet outage occurred last month was reportedly caused by an issue with the Fastly CDN. Days later, Fastly explained that the outage was caused after one of its customers changed some important settings, which lead to the global internet outage.

Similar outage happened with some of the AWS platforms including Amazon online shopping app earlier this month. Few months ago, Google platforms including Gmail, Google Docs, Google Drive, and other Google services also suffered massive outage for several hours. Both Amazon and Google acknowledged the issues behind the outage and fixed them.
