Netflix experiences a 2 hour outage

Weather stormThis afternoon Netflix experienced an outage for over 2 hours. This resulted in thousands of users taking to Twitter to voice their concern about their plans and how they would go about their day. Netflix primarily relies upon Amazon Web Services (AWS) to host their video library and streaming operations.

It is not clear at this time if the outage this afternoon was on the part of Netflix engineering or a Amazon Web Services issue.
