Internet outage impacted high profile sites

A major internet outage impacted a number of high profile websites on Tuesday (08.06.21).

As well as the UK government website, the likes of Amazon, Reddit, Twitch, The Guardian and the New York Times were all down for around an hour, while Twitter's emojis were broken.

The issue was down to cloud computing provider Fastly, who said in a statement that there had been a problem with its global content delivery network.

The company added: "We identified a service configuration that triggered disruption across our POPs (points of presence) globally and have disabled that configuration."

Fastly later confirmed: "Our global network is coming back online."
