Google suffers major cloud outage

Google suffers major cloud outage

"The network congestion issue in eastern United States of America affecting Google Cloud, G Suite and YouTube has been resolved for all affected users as of 4:00pm US/Pacific".

According to www.downdetector.com people began experiencing the outages between 3:30 p.m. and 4 p.m.

The firm said it's still unclear what exactly led to the massive outage. In a statement to The Verge, Google says they will conduct a post mortem and make appropriate improvements to their systems to prevent this from happening again.

Google has experienced a major cloud outage, which took down services for users worldwide for at least three hours.

The Google Cloud provides support for apps like YouTube and Snapchat, meaning that tonight's outage is mostly attached to this other ongoing issue.

The good news is that tonight's Google Cloud issues are dropping rapidly and should be solved very soon.

Some users were gifted with grayed out video recommendation graphics in addition to the menu tabs column.

If you noticed issues with YouTube, Snapchat, and Gmail yesterday you're not alone.

#YouTubeDOWN ranked first among trending topics in the US Sunday afternoon. Entire companies often rely on a single cloud service provider for their operation because of the many benefits it provides such as business scaling, monitoring and resources management, but a services' uptime and availability, generally touted as a plus, can also suffer either due to the cloud infrastructure running into problems or lack of contingency planning on the third-party's end.

Most of the outages were reported along the USA northeast coast, but many users in southern California, South America and Europe reported the site being down as well.

The company's G Suite Status page shows that Gmail, Google Calendar, Drive, Docs, Sheets, Sliges, Sites, Groups, Hangouts (plus its Chat and Meet), Vault, Forms, Keep, Tasks and Voice are all affected. An hour later, the company reported high levels of network congestion in the eastern U.S. affecting most of Google's cloud services including G Suite and YouTube with slow performance or intermittent errors.
