Google Cloud Platform, April 8
A failure involving Google Cloud’s Identity and Access Management (IAM) API locked users out of their Gmail accounts and disrupted other popular services built on Google Cloud.
The IAM issues, which started at 10:35 a.m. ET and lasted just under 90 minutes, tripped up multiple Google services, including App Engine, Cloud Functions, BigQuery and its core Compute Engine IaaS.
Nest, a Google sister company, had to explain to customers why their security cameras temporarily failed to record footage. And Snapchat, a prominent Google Cloud customer, was completely down for more than an hour.
