Amazon Says Data Center Power Back After Storm-Caused Outage

Amazon.com Inc. said severe East Coast thunderstorms led to power outages on June 29 at its Internet-based computing services, which are used by hundreds of thousands of businesses to store data and run websites.

The storms impacted power to several data centers in northern Virginia beginning on Friday night, the Seattle-based company said in an e-mailed statement. In one location, backup power didn’t operate correctly, affecting certain users. The company didn’t identify the customers and said power was fully restored by the next day.
