There is a major Amazon S3 outage which started at approximately 17:43 UTC today. It is still ongoing. The AWS status page is claiming that this only affects us-east-1, however we believe that this is affecting all regions.
You can track the issue here:
There are two major impacts on Snowplow:
- Iglu Central is served by CloudFront and backed by an S3 bucket in us-east-1. Iglu Central is not currently available, which means that all Snowplow events will fail validation
- Snowplow AWS batch pipelines are failing as they attempt to read from or write to Amazon S3; Snowplow AWS real-time pipelines are failing to sink data from Kinesis to Amazon S3
We will update this thread as we learn more.
