Amazon.com back up after nearly an hour of downtime

Amazon.com is back up after nearly an hour in which its website would not load Monday.

Some users saw a message saying the website was temporarily unavailable while improvements were being made. Others saw an error saying, “Oops! We're very sorry, but we're having trouble doing what you just asked us to do.”

But as of 12:40 p.m., the site was back up and running.

The downtime for Amazon comes a few days after Google services were unreachable for a few minutes. The Internet monitoring firm GoSquared said the Google issue led to a 40% drop in worldwide Internet traffic. Google has not provided any comment about the incident.

Amazon did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Amazon also operates a separate data center business, providing a significant amount of the computer infrastructure that powers other online companies, including Netflix. But those services appeared to be unaffected.
