Fastly is down.. It’s crazy

Fastly is one of the biggest CDNs out there and lends its services to many sites such as Reddit, CNET, GameSpot, Amazon (which includes AWS) and Twitch and as such a lot of them are down or severely hampered by it.

It’s kinda nuts how this kinda thing can happen. I don’t expect it to be down for long but I’ve personally never noticed anything as widespread as this before.


Lab rat
I seem to remember something similar happening to Cloudflare about a year ago, which caused Youtube and other sites to go down for a few hours.
Things like this will be why I always self-serve files instead of using a CDN - its not good if the whole internet depends on the same few services.
