EC2 (Elastic Compute Cloud), which handles Amazon Web Services across the globe went slightly AWOL this morning, causing havoc for sites in various locations. This unfortunately included our services here at MailBigFile.

Fortunately, it seemed only the Pro side of our servers were affected, meaning that users could still use our Business or Free services without interruption. This is quite fortunate when you consider other websites such as Reddit, Foursquare and Quora weren’t so lucky, with Quora and Reddit search at the time of this post still down.

While, again at the time of this post, the Amazon servers still aren’t fully functioning, they are making steady progress. If you’re curious as to how they’re progressing, you can check it here.
