Websites around the world, including major news sites, Amazon and the United Kingdom’s government page, were temporarily down during a massive outage early Tuesday.
Fastly, an American cloud computing services provider, said it began investigating the issue about 5:58 a.m. ET on its status page. The company, which provides content delivery services to many websites, said the issue was fixed within an hour.
“We identified a service configuration that triggered disruptions across our points of presence globally and have disabled that configuration,” Fastly told NBC News in a statement. “Our global network is coming back online.”
