The company said that AWS CloudFormation, Lambda, and Amazon Connect were impacted by the problem.

Update 2:49 PM PDT: AWS said that it was "working to accelerate the rate at which Lambda asynchronous invocations are processed, and now estimate that the queue will be fully processed over the next hour. We expect that all queued invocations will be executed."

Update 3:42 PM PDT: AWS claims that the issue has been resolved. However, some issues may exist for customers who have to manually relaunch services.
