On February 28th, an Amazon Web Services (AWS) data center suffered an outage as a result of human error. Unfortunately, this outage had far-reaching effects due to the number of other companies that use AWS to securely store their data off site. One of the companies that uses AWS is ServiceTrade, ABCO’s service software partner, and as a result some of our service data was not available for a few hours on that day. Due to contingencies we have in place, we are pleased to say our customers were not directly affected by this outage. Read more about the outage at the link below.
