Fastly’s senior vice president of engineering and infrastructure, Nick Rockwell, said in a blog post, “We experienced a global outage due to an undiscovered software bug that surfaced on June 8 when it was triggered by a valid customer configuration change.”
Rockwell continued, “We detected the disruption within one minute, then identified and isolated the cause, and disabled the configuration. Within 49 minutes, 95% of our network was operating as normal.”
During the approximated hour that the outage took place, websites like Amazon, Reddit, Google, Instagram, Twitter, Spotify, The New York Times, and more all found themselves halted.
