Looks like we may have some downtime. AWS (Amazon Web Services) is having problems with storage.
Performance issues: Instance connectivity, latency and error rates.

In addition to the EBS volume latencies, EBS-backed instances in the US-EAST-1 region are failing at a high rate. This is due to a high error rate for creating new volumes in this region.
We see some of our instanced being next to useless with the number of errors they generate. It’s all in Amazon’s hands at the moment. Stay tuned.
