The Status Page provides real-time system status and maintenance updates via email. All customers are encouraged to subscribe to status notifications to stay up-to-date with any events that may impact our services. When you sign up for status updates, you can fine-tune which service updates you receive. These different topic areas are referred to as components. If, for example, all your services are restricted to the Newark data center, you may only wish to subscribe to the Newark component.
