Welcome to 2022! We hope it will be a great year. First, the team at SolarWinds® Pingdom® would like to thank all Pingdom users for their support and loyalty in 2021.

2021 Web Performance in Review: The Ups and Downs

Let’s be clear. There were several outages in 2021. Maybe the significant outages bookending the year made it seem like the internet was in a constant yo-yo-ing state. From October’s Meta outage featuring Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp to the back-to-back-to-back AWS outages of their east and west servers in North America, many of the major websites across the U.S. were hit with downtime, slow loading pages, or broken user interaction journeys.

2021 web performance review for internet outages

How many? Glad you’re curious. Here are the stats recorded from the Pingdom website performance and availability monitoring solution.

  • There were 2.57 billion collective minutes of downtime. You could watch Avengers: End Game over 14 million times with that amount of time.
  • We sent about 109 million individual alerts across email, SMS, and chat. Sent to one phone, you’d have a constant text chime for almost 3.5 years.

Looking Forward to 2022
