Amazon.com is down

I don’t think I have ever seen this.

I heard a story about Amazon building something called a Gremlin which would randomly take down a particular service in the Amazon stack. This would force the engineers to build redundancy into every layer of the system. Seems smart, doesn’t it?

So what happened? They are down. I wonder how much money it costs them per second. Someone is really stressed out right now for sure.
