Dubai, United Arab Emirates (CNN)–Many websites and apps around the world went down Tuesday after Fastly, a major content delivery network, reported a widespread outage.
Fastly supports news websites and apps such as CNN, The Guardian, The New York Times, and many more. It also provides content delivery services for Twitch, Pinterest, HBO Max, Hulu, Reddit, Spotify, and other services.
Other major internet platforms and websites including Amazon, Target and UK government website UK.Gov were also affected.
The problem appears to be related to a service outage at Fastly, a cloud service provider. On its Service Status site, which has not encountered any issues, the company said it has identified and fixed the issue – but several locations are still unavailable for some users at 7am EST (11am GMT).
Fastly helps improve load times for websites and provides other services to websites, applications and platforms, including a large global server network.
