Amazon Datacenter Outage -- affecting our www.inkfrog.com site.

Greg S. -

Hi all, we currently use Amazon AWS to host some of our servers -- Amazon AWS is a great service and is provided in Amazon's Datacenters. They are a very reliable company, but currently they are experiencing a major outage which affects their EBS volumes, which we use quite a bit of. Because of this outage, our www.inkfrog.com site was down for a period of time. Other aspects of the site appear to be unaffected as they are in other Datacenters.  You will notice that our current www.inkfrog.com site will allow you to login, but it's not as pretty as our usual one. We wanted to setup a temporary way to login so users can continue working.

I apologize for the inconvenience of this, if anyone wants to keep updated on the status of Amazon, you can go to: http://status.aws.amazon.com/  and take a look at the N. Carolina EC2 status.

    My listings were slated to go up at 6PM EST and nothing is happening. Is this the result of this problem?

    Hi all, this should not be affecting your listings in anyway -- can you explain what is happening exactly? What happens when you try to list?

    Image uploads should not be affected either. Only our www.inkfrog.com site is affected currently.

    I get error codes and it says not listed .. I had to go on ebay and reslit everything there.. Nothing will list. Plus the upload won't work. Ihave tried on three different computers.. And nothing. It stops .. And none of the pictures come up.

    I can not list anything. When I do an auction it doesn't list the item. It just stops.

    Can you tell me what error codes you are getting? The errors are when you try and list?

     

    regarding images, can you send me an item number?

    We found the issue with the scheduler, unrelated to the Amazon issues, but will be resolved in a few minutes and the scheduler will catch up.
