Amazon says it has resolved a fault at its North Virginia data centre that knocked several of the world's most popular online services offline for a few hours - in New Zealand and overseas.

Casualties included online game Minecraft, Reddit, social media service Foursquare and Viber, a service that lets people make cheap internet phone calls from mobiles.

It was the second major outage at the data centre this year. As well as being an online shopping site, Amazon also hosts third party services from its data centres.
