The 10 Biggest Cloud Outages Of 2012


9. GoDaddy

GoDaddy, a cloud hoster for thousands of SMBs and small websites, on Sept. 10 lost service for six hours.

The company said the outage was caused by a series of internal network events that corrupted router data tables, and not by an attack from Anonymous (pictured), as the hacker group claimed.

One month later, GoDaddy announced it would shutter its cloud business, informing its SMB customers it will focus on other parts of its SMB business.
