When it comes to assuring great digital experiences for your users, intermittent issues can be incredibly difficult to discover and diagnose because the service is both working and not working simultaneously—or, it may simply be running slow. Some users may experience issues, while for others, everything will work just fine.In this week’s episode, The Internet Report team will explore the complexities that intermittent issues can bring by examining two recent incidents at Meta and Salesforce. They’ll also cover an automation bug at Google Cloud that caused problems for a range of customers, as well as recent Internet outage trends.Listen now or use the timestamps below to jump to the sections that most interest you:CHAPTERS00:00 Intro01:00 Meta Disruption05:07 Salesforce DNS Disruption10:08 Google Cloud Issues Impact Spotify, GitLab, and More15:09 Outage Trends: By the Numbers17:14 Get in Touch ———For more insights, check out the related Internet Report blog: https://www.thousandeyes.com/blog/internet-report-meta-salesforce-disruptions?utm_source=transistor&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=na_fy24q4_internetreport_q4fy24ep2_podcast———Want to get in touch?If you have questions, feedback, or guests you would like to see featured on the show, send us a note at InternetReport@thousandeyes.com.

Over a two-day period this past week, major social media platforms—Meta’s Facebook and Instagram, LinkedIn, and Discord—all experienced disruptions. In the same timeframe, Comcast was also impacted by an outage that affected access to specific services and applications.Meta experienced issues with its log-in process, Discord navigated unexpectedly high load volumes, Comcast dealt with 100% packet loss in part of its backbone, and—the following day—LinkedIn worked its way through a backend issue.These incidents each leave valuable reminders for NetOps teams as they seek to minimize downtime and assure exceptional digital experiences.Tune in to the episode to learn more and also gain insight into the latest outage numbers and trends.——— CHAPTERS:00:00 Intro00:58 Comcast Outage05:09 Meta Outage09:38 Discord Disruption10:25 LinkedIn Outage13:22 DIRECTV Service Disruption15:25 Outage Trends: By the Numbers17:03 Get in Touch ———For more insights, check out these links:- The Internet Report: Pulse Update Blog: https://www.thousandeyes.com/blog/internet-report-pulse-update-meta-linkedin-comcast-outages?utm_source=transistor&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=na_fy24q3_internetreportpulse31_podcast- Explore the outages in the ThousandEyes platform (no login required):Comcast Outage: https://afplzaqpehynhosldcqefycfhqqcrbzh.share.thousandeyes.com LinkedIn Outage: https://anxjzezcpptrnpodjucgzzixdkldguzm.share.thousandeyes.com - Internet Outages Timeline: https://www.thousandeyes.com/resources/internet-outages-timeline?utm_source=transistor&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=na_fy24q3_internetreportpulse31_podcast———Want to get in touch?If you have questions, feedback, or guests you would like to see featured on the show, send us a note at InternetReport@thousandeyes.com.

When outages happen, it’s what you do next that matters. It’s important to have a backup plan in place that you can quickly activate to minimize the impact of an incident.Over the past two weeks, companies initiated a range of resiliency actions, including asking customers to use alternate authentication methods (or to avoid logging out of a service), setting up a new contact center to re-establish lines of communication, and reverting to manual processes.Tune in to learn more about what happened during these and other recent incidents.CHAPTERS:00:00 Intro01:00 Square Outage Impacts “Multiple” Services04:18 Applied Digital’s Multi-week Data Center Issue07:14 UC Berkeley Data Center Outage08:44 Russia .ru Domain Outage10:05 Cyber Attack at Lurie Children's Hospital11:36 Outage Trends: By the Numbers15:55 Get in Touch———For more insights on outage trends and analysis of some of the most notable outages of 2023, check out our on-demand webinar: https://www.thousandeyes.com/resources/amer-top-outages-2023-analyses-takeaways-webinar?utm_source=transistor&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=na_fy24q3_internetreportpulse29_podcastIn EMEA and want to tune in live?

As they launch into 2024, organizations are facing a different outage landscape than they had at the start of 2023. The past year saw increases in cloud service provider (CSP) outages, application outages, and the percentage of U.S.-centric outages—all of which point to an evolution in the way outages happen and the need for different strategies to minimize the impact of disruptions.In this episode, Mike Hicks (Principal Solutions Analyst at ThousandEyes) unpacks these trends and shares practical tips for mitigating disruptions and optimizing performance.

In recent weeks, back-end infrastructure work and other backend-related issues impacted various online and consumer banking services, including DBS and Citibank in Singapore.Simple front-facing customer experiences that we’ve become accustomed to today can often mask considerable complexity on the backend. The service delivery chain of technologies powering the front end often comprises a mix of on-premises assets, cloud services, containers, and APIs.A degradation or outage to just one of those components can have massive impact. Depending on the architecture of the app and resilience of the backend, an incident in one part can be routed around in the best case scenario, or take down critical systems for hours in the worst case.Tune in to this episode to learn more about how backend changes led to outages at DBS, Citibank, and a number of Japanese banks—and how other backend issues appeared to contribute to a Google Cloud VMware Engine disruption and potentially also a Microsoft Exchange incident.For more insights, check out these links:- The Internet Report: Pulse Update Blog: https://www.thousandeyes.com/blog/internet-report-pulse-update-dbs-citibank-outages?utm_source=transistor&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=na_fy24q1_internetreportpulse22_podcast- Explore the Equinix issues that impacted DBS and Citibank: https://ajhrlohbopohbnmekzbcvrbeslqaijfr.share.thousandeyes.com/- Interested in more outage analysis?

Outages and degradations can happen when underlying data isn’t fresh enough. In recent weeks, stale data may have contributed to incidents at both Slack and Cloudflare. Slack began experiencing issues when, by our best guess, its app stopped trusting the freshness of the data in the cache; and, separately, Cloudflare’s 1.1.1.1 DNS resolver ran into some issues related to stale root zone data.Watch this Pulse Update episode to hear more about the Cloudflare and Slack outages, and also explore recent disruptions at Google.For more insights, check out these links:- Explore the Slack outage in the ThousandEyes platform (NO LOGIN REQUIRED): https://apiyhhcphzaowmpqpyxrtdgggadiiujg.share.thousandeyes.com- Interested in more outage analysis?

Providing great digital experiences relies on a complex service delivery chain. The past few weeks brought multiple reminders that the root cause of cloud and app disruptions often comes down to one single link in this chain. While the component at issue may appear small, if it’s not functioning normally, the consequences can be significant. Additionally, the impact of a malfunctioning “link” is often intensified by a lack of understanding or visibility into the entire end-to-end service delivery chain, especially in situations where a change is made outside standard operating procedures or pipelines.In this episode, explore how this phenomenon appeared to play out recently when .au domains failed to resolve, as well as during disruptions at Salesforce and Microsoft Azure.For more insights, check out these links:- Explore the .au incident in the ThousandEyes platform (NO LOGIN REQUIRED): https://ajdaombojgmvnbvsclhtvgmrskaicjvo.share.thousandeyes.com/- Internet Outages Timeline: https://www.thousandeyes.com/resources/internet-outages-timeline?utm_source=transistor&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=internetreportpulseep20———CHAPTERS00:00 Intro00:54 The Download06:01 By the Numbers08:23 .au Domains Fail to Resolve15:42 PlayStation Network Disruption21:10 Get in Touch———Want to get in touch?If you have questions, feedback, or guests you would like to see featured on the show, send us a note at InternetReport@thousandeyes.com.
