This is the Internet Report, where we uncover what’s working and what’s breaking on the Internet—and why. On today’s episode, Angelique and I cover off on a couple outages that occurred over the past week. First, we discuss an application outage at Instagram that occurred on September 17th and lasted around 30 minutes. We also discuss a network outage on September 14th on the AWS backbone near Columbus, Ohio. This outage was a little more widespread, affecting nearly 100 interfaces and lasting around 30 minutes. Next, we dive into the upcoming bans on WeChat and TikTok, which have now been temporarily extended by a federal judge, and then we walk through some of the network architecture differences between these two applications and how a potential shutdown could be enforced. Catch this week’s episode by watching the video above.
