    Default Saurik Comments on Cydia Outage and Ongoing Recovery Efforts


    On Friday, Jay Freeman (aka Saurik) posted a crimson enclosed notice on the front page of Cydia acknowledging an unfortunate problem plaguing no shortage of prominent digital domains. Reddit, Quora, FourSquare, Hootsuite, the New York Times, ProPublica and, yes, Cydia - not to mention about five dozen other sites - are enduring a significant outage that is, for obvious reasons, raising some serious questions about the reliability of Amazon Web Services and all things cloud-related.

    On Thursday, Freeman posted an update on Twitter regarding the widespread dilemma. "Amazon EC2 (which does host the primary Cydia website, purchasing, etc.) is currently experiencing severe issues: nothing I can do but wait," he tweeted. Tonight, Cydia has been updated with the following message:

    Amazon EC2, which hosts Cydia's internal website, has been having extreme issues for - 40 hours. This outage affects the ability to purchase paid products, the Theme Center, and Manage Account. I (saurik) have been sleeping in hour-and-a-half shifts since this outage began in order to keep a dialog open with Amazon "Premium Support" regarding this issue. Recently, enough access was recovered in order for me to modify the home page to add this message.

    Unfortunately, Amazon's status and ETAs have been confusingly vague and highly optimistic throughout the experience, causing me to be unable to make good decisions about disaster recovery choices. At this time, the latest news from Amazon AWS (as of two hours ago) was "that this will take 3-4 hours until full access is restored." Meanwhile, Premium Support has asked engineering to prioritize recovering Cydia's infrastructure. (For those interested in this sort of thing: this is the same Amazon EC2 outage that has been affecting other sites like reddit and foursquare.)
    According to CNN Money in their ongoing coverage of this digital disaster, Amazon "touts the way it links together many different data centers to protect customers from isolated failures." In fact, it promises to keep customers' sites up and running 99.95% of the year, "or it will shave 10% off customers' monthly bills."

    We'll keep you posted on the Cydia outage and the ongoing repair and recovery efforts.

    So wheres the 10% off my cydia bill, amazon??

    It's all cause they think they can show up apple and release a cloud music locker without the music industry and not only screw over negotiations for everyone but screw themselves over because they can't even handle it on their servers. Maybe the amazon app store is adding to it. Yeah forget the music locker the downloading of angry birds rio is what did it.... obviously (:

    This is just sad on amazon's part. It just gives the impression that their services are ****.

    BTW, I was the one that tipped them on this story.

    so this is why cydia's shsh is gone?

  25. #20
    For some reason this has caused my tlert Cydia app to stop working and it's telling me my license has expired. Anyone else experiencing this? Anyone know of another app like tlert where this won't happen?
