Several websites and digital services around the world are failing on Tuesday. A problem that affects platforms such as Google, Gmail and Twitter, but also media and banking websites.
The pages of publications such as CNN, The New York Times or BBC have been offline or with access issues. But there have also been difficulties with services like PayPal, Spotify and YouTube or social networks like Reddit and Twitter.
The Downdetector platform, a specialist in service failures on the Internet, detected errors and instability on hundreds of websites, including on the pages of NOS, Vodafone and MEO.
But it also points out difficulties in the websites of BCP, CGD, Montepio and Santander, among other services.
It is a question of a “Worldwide server failure”, according to the Spanish newspaper El Mundo, which has also been affected by the problems.
The publication states that it is a “Fastly failed, a content distribution network”.
Most websites need services from companies like Fastly that host “large parts of the Internet in warehouses full of servers that respond to constant requests from users”, points out El Mundo.
But when these requests exceed the capacity of the servers, they interrupt the content distribution service.
However, the Fastly has already announced that he has identified the problem. and that you are trying to fix it as soon as possible.
