Rice IT successfully reconfigured a third Internet link to Amazon Cloud Services after campus systems that rely on the utility suffered degraded performance issues.

When the primary external Internet connection to Amazon Cloud Services stopped functioning properly, local Rice systems using storage and database space in the commercial cloud appeared to be offline. The secondary Internet link to Amazon's cloud quickly filled with traffic and resulted in continued performance degradation.

IT will leave the work-around configuration in place until Amazon Cloud Services are again available through their primary link.
