Due to a technical problem that affects the websites and apps of large companies worldwide. The sites are now accessible again.
The problems cropped up worldwide. Bloomberg, for example, identified problems at DraftKings, FedEx and airline Delta.
The cause of the malfunction is said to lie with the company Akamai, a content delivery network that ensures that websites are available worldwide. Akamai has also tweeted about the issue herself.
They themselves speak of an ‘interruption in service extension’. “We are investigating the problem and will provide an update in half an hour.”
A similar problem arose in June of this year due to a problem at Fastly, a US provider of cloud computing services. Then there were also numerous websites, ranging from the New York Times to the BBC and RTBF in our country.
