Global Internet Outage, ITWorksME resolves issue immediately with multi-CDN plan

01.09.2020

In a major global internet outage on Sunday, users worldwide reported that they were unable to access their websites. The interruption that occurred just before midday has been termed one of the biggest outages in the recent past and affected regions such as the United States, Britain, Japan, the Middle East, France, and Brazil.

A spike in outages online was reported, and many sites and online services, including eBay, Huru, Twitter, Hulu, Play Station, and Xbox Live, were affected. Online Security giants and web performance experts, Cloudflare reported that they were aware of the issue. They added that some of the services affected included digital services and data centers across the globe.

The outage happened due to a bug that affected CenturyLink, a US-based telecom company based in Monroe, Louisiana. The company posted a status update on their website saying the outage was caused by a problem at their data center cloud network that affected CDN delivery and access to the internet. They didn’t give an update on the estimated restoration time.
