Amazon's network is a key differentiator for Amazon Cloud Computing and Web Services (AWS), enabling the global operation of thousands of applications across millions of servers worldwide. The network is fundamental to the success of and hundreds of thousands of AWS Customers. And, right alongside there is THE most pervasive, important, and complex communications network in the world -- the Internet.

The Internet is the world's most complex network, with over 57,402 unique networks connected together, it contains hundreds of millions of edges and nodes - somewhere out there things are about to go south.

One of the core backbone routers of a major Tier-1 Internet provider is having a bad day. It started with a transient, yet persistent, problem which was only detectable by a slight increase in dropped packets that went mostly unnoticed. An hour later the router suffered a catastrophic failure dumping 500Gbps of traffic onto an already congested alternate path causing ripples across the Internet, disrupting websites and other Internet based services on the U.S Eastern seaboard.

Social media is ablaze as frustrated people rant about their favorite website, video, or gaming service being down, or so slow that it's unusable. While the Internet burns, our customers are humming away oblivious to the disaster.
