Google suffers major cloud outage

Google suffers major cloud outage

Google acknowledged the issue, writing in a statement on its Cloud Platform status page that it was dealing with "high levels of network congestion in the eastern U.S., affecting multiple services in Google Cloud, G Suite and YouTube".

Starting earlier today, users started reporting that they were unable to connect to Google services such as Google Cloud, Gmail, YouTube, G Suite.

Outage-tracking service Down Detector says some 48,000 downtime-related complaints about Snapchat were reported in peak hours, before dropping significantly further down the line. The root cause appears to be problems with Google's Cloud service which powers apps other than just Google's own web services.

The network congestion issue affecting Google Cloud, G Suite, and YouTube is resolved for the vast majority of users, and we expect a full resolution in the near future. "We will provide a detailed report of this incident once we have completed our internal investigation", it said in the incident report.

Google Plus, the company's social media network on life support, faced no issues.

"Google is down. We have a Nest thermostat".

Google Cloud services are being interrupted. This essentially meant that because of a cloud storage outage, people were prevented from getting inside their homes, using their AC, and monitoring their babies.

YouTube also tweeted notifying users as it identified and fixed the issue.

Instead of seeing the usual menu of recommended videos, users who visited the YouTube homepage were gifted with a blank screen. An hour later, the company reported high levels of network congestion in the eastern US affecting most of Google's cloud services including G Suite and YouTube with slow performance or intermittent errors. Unlike many other news organizations, we have not put up a paywall.
