If you are facing or faced difficulties loading certain websites then note there has been a service disruption. Content delivery platform Akamai faced an outage for a limited time (starting arpund 8.55 pm) bringing down several key websites and apps in India along with Canada, Australia, UK, New Zealand and others. As Akamai is a global content delivery network, major websites faced an outage too. The company from its official handle tweeted, “Akamai is experiencing a service disruption. We are actively investigating the issue and will provide an update in 30 minutes.”
Thankfully, the outage did not last long and most websites and apps are slowly crawling back online. Most websites rely on cloud service providers and Content Delivery Networks (CDN) to run their content. An outage like this occurs when a particular service provider faces a technical glitch. With Akamai facing a disruption, all its clients will automatically face problems loading websites as it’s a popular global service provider.
