Amazon Web Services Collapsed Due To A Single Typo

Amazon Web Services Collapsed Due To A Single Typo

Image Source : For representational purpose only 
The internet melted down on 28th Feb 2017 due to an apparent major outage that lasted for almost 5 hours that brought down thousands of websites and their services that used Amazon Web Services also known as AWS. 
AWS offers cloud web hosting solutions for websites and web applications.
Many speculated that it could be due to a major malware, virus or attack by hackers that disrupted the entire internet. Later, Amazon released its official statement on the issue and made a shocking revelation that the outage that hit thousands of website was due to a mere typo error that caused the whole issue.
Here is the snippet of the official statement from Amazon.
"We’d like to give you some additional information about the service disruption that occurred in the Northern Virginia (US-EAST-1) Region on the morning of February 28th. The Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) team was debugging an issue causing the S3 billing system to progress more slowly than expected. At 9:37AM PST, an authorized S3 team member using an established playbook executed a command which was intended to remove a small number of servers for one of the S3 subsystems that is used by the S3 billing process. Unfortunately, one of the inputs to the command was entered incorrectly and a larger set of servers was removed than intended. The servers that were inadvertently removed supported two other S3 subsystems."  
Amazon ended the note with an apology to its customers who got affected by the unplanned outage.
"Finally, we want to apologize for the impact this event caused for our customers. While we are proud of our long track record of availability with Amazon S3, we know how critical this service is to our customers, their applications and end users, and their businesses. We will do everything we can to learn from this event and use it to improve our availability even further."
Many experts believed that such an outage from a trusted company like Amazon is unexpected and can hamper the company's credibility to expand their cloud business.
For the poor engineer, who must has entered the typo we have only one thing to say.
"To err is human, to forgive divine"
