Netflix Experienced Another Multi-Hour Outage Tonight

According to hackingnetflix.com:

Netflix experienced another multi-hour outage tonight, as confirmed by NetflixHelps on Twitter. ReadWriteCloud reports that the outage was caused by a disruption in Amazon's Web Services.
It appears that Amazon Web Services has suffered another outage tonight. The AWS Service Health Dashboard confirms that there were Internet connectivity issues at the EC2 location in the US-EAST-1, as well as issues with the Amazon Relational Database Service in Virginia. Amazon lists both issues as resolved but some sites, with the total downtime amounting to less than half an hour. It's not clear how many Availability Zones were affected, or if this affected the entire US-EAST-1 region.
