A number of major websites based across the world were affected by a huge internet outage earlier today. The sites included well-known news outlets such as the BBC, The Guardian and The New York Times as well as a range of other important websites ranging from the UK Government’s website to Amazon, Twitch and Reddit.

The issue has been traced to a failure in one of Fastly’s content delivery networks (CDN), with the cloud computing services provider posting a notice at 5.58AM EST stating that it was “currently investigating potential impact to performance with our CDN services.”

Fastly has since explained that it “identified a service configuration that triggered disruptions across our POPs globally and have disabled that configuration. Our global network is coming back online.”
