How the Amazon Web Services Outage Affected GrabCAD
Like many other popular sites on the internet, GrabCAD suffered a service disruption yesterday (Feb. 28) due to a massive server outage of Amazon Web Services (AWS). The outage occurred around 1 p.m. EST and affected all GrabCAD services across the board, and even the portal by which GrabCAD Support receives requests from our users.
Amazon announced shortly after 5 p.m. EST that it had resolved the problem.
No GrabCAD data on any of our platforms was lost during the outage, but any uploads or downloads in progress during the time of the outage will have failed and will need to be redone.
We sincerely apologize for the disruption in GrabCAD services.
