Amazon Web Services (AMZN) witnesses a giant outage thanks to the storms that hit the East Coast last night. The outage affected Netflix (NFLX), Instagram, Pinterest, and many other clients. It's the second time AWS has gone down in June, and, together with a Thursday Salesforce.com (CRM) outage, drives home the reliability concerns some enterprises still have about cloud services. The outage comes days after Google (GOOG) launched a rival cloud infrastructure platform.
