The 10 Biggest Cloud Outages Of 2022 (So Far)

Cloud outages so far this year have affected companies including Apple, Microsoft and Google.

March Google Cloud Outage

On March 8, users of Google’s Traffic Director tool experienced “elevated service errors for 2 hours and 35 minutes,” according to the cloud giant. Services such as Spotify and Discord were hit by the outage.

“A change to the Traffic Director code that processes the configuration was updated,” according to a post by Mountain View, Calif.-based Google. “The code change assumed that the configuration data format migration was fully completed. In fact, the data migration had not completed.

The post continued: “It would inadvertently delete the configurations which caused the downstream clients to lose their programming and deconfigure the data plane.”
