Many sites are currently feeling the pain of an Amazon S3 outage. According to http://status.aws.amazon.com/, S3 has been down since about 9AM PDT today.
Unfortunately, my company's site is one that 's impacted.
The AWS Service Health Dashboard is helpful but I'd prefer something that provides a more proactive notification when there's a service interruption. Something along the lines of an SMS once a service disruption is announced.
Perhaps there's something out there already that I haven't found?
UPDATE: As of 5PM PDT, Amazon is reporting that the system is back to normal.
UPDATE: Here's the latest summary of the chain of events from Amazon. Nice of them to not make every customer email for SLA credit.
