Cloud computing provider Fastly, which was behind the problems, said it was implementing a fix.
So a couple of days ago it seemed all sorts of popular sites simply stopped working, down to Fastly, a CDN going down.
Do these big internet companies hold too much power? Does make me think. So many sites these days rely on Cloudflare, AWS etc. My company has gone all-in on AWS and we’ve had a couple of outages of this.
Personally I keep my sites simple. I used to use Cloudflare for my personal projects including this site, but not any more. Now it just runs on a Digital Ocean VM so provided they stay up - and they have been pretty reliable, CF should keep running.
