Amazon finally explained what happened when it accidentally took down the internet

In lengthy and rather technical note to customers, Amazon explained that an employee entered a command incorrectly and caused a chain of events that ultimately led to parts of the internet going bonkers. Amazon has protocols in place to fix downtime issues like these, but the problem was so ample that not even Amazon could fix it in a timely matter. That’s why the outage lasted for several hours — well, technically it wasn’t an outage since only subsets of Amazon Web Services’ complex architecture went down. – Chris Smith, BGR
