Millions of small websites, app backends, and various high-profile services are offline or experiencing severe issues because of a mysterious problem that hit Amazon's S3 (Simple Storage Service) a few hours ago.

Current reports indicate that a large number of services have been affected and are completely offline. Many other services and websites are also loading very slowly, while others services report that multimedia content doesn't load at all, mainly because it was hosted on S3.
