Outage: Multiple outages at AMS-IX Internet Exchange affecting Internet stability: Solved

Dear customers,

We are currently experiencing an outage with our peering via AMS-IX. Our Network Operations team is investigating this outage.  Further updates will be released as soon as possible.

Please find all details below:

Start*: 22-11-2023 19:08*
End*: 22-11-2023 23:04*
Duration: 3 hours 56 minutes
Impacted services: Global internet connectivity
Affected Areas**: All areas

Edit 11:03*: AMS-IX has confirmed the outage started affecting users again since 9:38 today. As before, the outage will only affect you irregularly and will not cause a total loss of connectivity. Some pages may load slow or not at all, some services might be harder to reach. AMS-IX is investigating the issue and we will keep you posted.

Edit 11:28*: AMS-IX reports they have identified and possibly isolated the problem, so recovery is to be expected soon. It is worth mentioning that this issue does not affect our services to our customers directly as we have enough bandwith to provide even with AMS-IX down. But it may affect internet speed and stability as this issue affects a considerable percentage of all traffic handled by our peering provider. We are closely monitoring the situation to make sure it remains stable for us.

Edit 14:56*: AMS-IX is continuing to update and it seems like they have found the problem, and are mitigating the situation as we speak. We see the situation is normalizing, which means your connectivity should be improving. Our additional measures remain in effect until AMS-IX has closed the issue.

We apologize for the inconveniences.

Best regards
The edpnet team
