"Half Of The Internet Is Down" After Cloudflare Suffers Major Outage

•, Tyler Durden

It appears a router on our global backbone announced bad routes and caused some potions of the network to not be available. We believe we have addressed the root cause and monitoring systems for stability now."

One of the web's most important infrastructure providers, CloudFlare, is suffering an outage currently and that has had knock on (or rather knock out) effects across the entire web.

Cloudflare provides DNS and CDN (content delivery network) services and powers "a good 40%of the internet."

More than 27 million Internet properties are on Cloudflare, and our network is growing by tens of thousands each day. Cloudflare powers Internet requests for ~13% of the Fortune 1,000 for more than 1 billion unique IP addresses per day.
