The 10 Biggest Cloud Outages of 2013 (So Far)


Google Part Two

... Or should we call it parts two, three and four? In March of this year, the Google Drive storage service suffered three outages in a single week. Primary issues, which began on March 18, involved isolated software glitches that subsequently resulted in larger problems. As much as one-third of the customer base was impacted, leading to a virtual hue-and-cry across the Internet. On March 19, there was a two-hour outage, followed by an even lengthier loss of service on March 20. Google was pretty tight-lipped about the sources of the three outages, but users say the service has been relatively stable in recent weeks.
